Harry Potter, Just because....

Happy New Year peeps I hope you all had a really time over the festive holidays. Everything is back to normal now here (well as normal as can be here haha)The tree and cards came down on Saturday why does that make the place look so bare they’re only up for a couple of weeks but it seems empty oh well no doubt it will be coming around again very soon as the years seem to fly by nowadays (must be an age thing!!!!)

Anyways Before I get on with my card for today (and boy did I enjoy making this little chappie) You may have noticed a drop in followers I know I did just over the Christmas holidays although it has gone back up again thank you apparently Google are doing some changes and if you don’t have a google + account you won’t be able to follow blogs unless you do it through Bloglovin’ (which I can be found on) or Networked blogs (again I’m on there also)
Please, please if you can find a way to stay following me I would be more than grateful it’s lovely to know that there are some people out there that read my posts (Waffle)

So onto my card this is just because card yes I know it says birthday but the reason I made it was.. just because I wanted to, and I can’t remember the last time I actually made a card just because I wanted to and I am so glad I did. I have had the image for a while now but not had the chance to colour it so the end of last week and over the weekend I designed a card and started to colour it and here is my finished piece


The card is 8x8” and the papers are from Pixel Scrapper (all freebies). I used an old sketch for the LO and printed everything off the font is in the Harry Potter style then I distressed and inked the papers in crushed olive and faded jeans DI

The image is called how to be a wizard by Mo Manning and I have coloured him in with my polychrome pencils. 

I think the reason I have put off colouring it for so long also is because there is a lot of open space to colour which scares me to death using my pencils as the blending is something I’m still working on but fingers crossed I have done the image justice (I’m happy with the outcome anyway) it ‘s amazing how much there is still to learn though but I’m having a blast doing so.
I coloured the background using a very light grey spectrum Noir pen but that was the only part that wasn’t coloured with poly’s

I die cut the border and also some glitter stars and added these to the bottom

Inside to bring it all together I used papers from the front and an image I have had for what seems like forever of a Harry Potter hat and I just coloured that in and added a small sentiment on the other page.

So there you have my card I am now in the process of colouring Mo’s wizard in (eeekkkkkk)it’s a mammoth task for me but loving it anyway I will leave you with another look at the super cute image and a list of challenges
See you very soon with another birthday card (this time for a special friend)
