Magnolia-licious May challenge

Well, I am back with another card for the day. This is for Magnolia-licious' May challenge, which is a sketch:

I have used the gorgeous new Sherwood Edwin stamp and sentiment, again from the Fairytale collection new from Magnolia (if you want him, go and visit Tickled Pink Stamps to pre-order) and I have also used the background stamp from the Lazy Summer Days 2009 collection. The cloud paper is also from Magnolia, available at Tickled Pink Stamps in the Lazy Summer Days paper pack.

I have made some faux wood for the little diagonal strips by following a tutorial by the gorgeous Debbie P which you can see here and here, except I used Kraft cardstock and sahara sand ink instead of the more mustard which gives the wood a more aged look.

I have coloured Edwin and the background in Copics:

B000, 21, 23
BG 92, 95
G12, 14, 16, 40,
E11, 00, 000, 31, 34, 55, 57
C1, 3, 5
