If you are here as part of the Challenge Blog hop, welcome! To my subscribers, please join the hop below to see loads of fun inspiration! Such an exciting lineup of designers and images for the launch of HeartcraftPaper! I am a big fan of a certain magical group of kids, and these new World of Gryffindor images did not disappoint! I colored up Gemma with Copic markers, adding a grassy lawn for her to be seated upon.
The background is from the coordinating sentiment set, printed larger to cover the back panel of the card front. I lightly brushed Mustard Seed Distress Ink to warm the background, fading from darker to lighter as I moved toward the top of the panel. I used Moonstone Glimmer Paste from Nuvo over the stars using a stencil in my stash, and added a few more smaller stars for fun. The warm sunny sky was a great complement to the rich maroon back panel for the card. Yellow and maroon are a certain house's colors after all.
I mounted the spell panel flat to the maroon back panel, then foam mounted our studious wizard studying amongst her books. I chose not to add an additional sentiment to the front. I think this card is perfect for a magical birthday or congrats for an academic achievement (or graduation). Her expression is so sweet and the image is just so lovely! I can't wait to color the remaining images from this release!
