Crafts-Too Challenge You (C2cu) Challenge #2 - Summer Days - Twist 2 - Beach Colours -

Hello for the second/third week of our Twist 2 challenge - 'Beach Colours'.

I decided I would really like to do some parchment for this challenge and I went to my favourite designer Judith Maslen for inspiration.  I have done this pattern before but I have taken some liberties this time and there are a few alterations to fit the challenge. (sorry Judith).

Isn't he just gorgeous?  I have re-designed the border, added a blue band of colour and some blue and white striped ribbon and buttons from Crafts-Too - all to accentuate the beach and sea feel. He has been traced in black ink and then embossed and coloured.  I think he is definitely an 'Edward'.
