Edwin Through the Porthole

As we all know, there are many different things that give us our inspiration, from the shape of a card, to a special paper or ribbon, an image, or, in this case, the sentiment. I thought Dangling Sea Edwin was perfect for this card so here he is, along with the new mini Mermaid Tilda. He may be in a precarious position but he's still optimistic and I guess he's going to make the best of this situation as he always does. The sentiment is from Stampendous, the flourish is a heat embossed Sizzix die, CB Divine Swirls embossing folder and K&Co DP. I colored them with Copics but as usual, I forgot to make note of them. Maybe one of these days I'll remember!
