Clever Edwin

Love this Edwin stamp but hardly ever used it, until I saw this weeks challenge over at I Love Promarkers!! Their theme is a receipe of 1 ribbon, 2 different papers and 3 buttons. I think he looks rather clever sat there on top of his books, don't you? I've tried to take a close up of Edwin's glasses, not sure if you can see but I've used Glossy Accents on them. The stamps are singles and to make it look like Edwin is sitting on the books I used a mask of Edwin, placed it over the Edwin I was going to use and then stamped the books on top, then removed the masked image and HEY PRESTO Edwin is sat on his books!! Not bad considering it was my first attempt at doing a mask. Hope you all like it.

Here's everything else I used:
Papers - Bazzil and Hampstead by Papermania.
Stamps - Edwin, Books both by Magnolia. Coloured with Promarkers.
Large Octagons - Spellbinders Nestabilities.
Ribbon, buttons, glossy accents and sentiment are from my crafty stash.

I'm entering it into the following challenges:
I Love Promarkers - A Receipe.
Passion For Promarkers - Books.
