I'm back with another magical card for HeartcraftPaper. A few weeks ago I made a slider card using the digital image Harold, as he was flying over Hogwarts in an attempt to catch the snitch. As I often do, I colored two images at the same time and decided to use the larger image for my card today. You can visit my blog Magical Birthday Takes Flight for the Copic marker colors I used to color Harold.
My goal for this card was to create movement. I wanted it to look like our magical player was flying at lightening speed after that golden snitch. I also wanted to keep a very simple color palette, with a bold section of black. On a piece of white cardstock, I inked lines of Black Soot Distress Oxide ink radiating out from where Harold's hand would be, outward toward the opposite corner. I staggered the lines at will, using the edge of a scrap of acetate and my blender. To bring in a bit more color, I blended in Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink, being careful not to blend into the black lines too much. I trimmed down my inked panel, cutting a deep diagonal from the lower left. I mounted this inked panel onto the black cardstock using foam tape, then added our amazing Quidditch player on top, also using foam tape. Lastly, I added the sentiment "Have A Wizin' Good Day" from Wizarding Sentiments, trimming off the stars that are part of the sentiment. I glued the sentiment flat to the inked panel and was done!
Don't forget there is still time to play along in the HeartcraftPaper Challenge #1! Today is the last day to play! So, link up a creation for the chance to win some HCP digitals!
Until next time.. have a wizin' good day! ;)
