Its a new challenge over at the Sisterhood of Crafters challenge blog and the theme this fortnight is “Oh Boy, what next…”. Its a fun theme chosen by Agata, and you could make a card for a Boy or something masculine,
or something fun, or a declaration of pregnancy, or…. its up to your imagination!
I immediately thought of using my little wizard from Craftin’ Desert Diva’s “Adventure Awaits” stamp set to create a scene with an element of mystery, where he uses his crystal ball to see whats coming next!
To put this together, I first adhered a piece of the the water-coloured galaxy I painted before, onto my white card base. I then added some embossing paste through the “Small brick wall” stencil from My Favorite Things. I wanted to create the illusion that the wall disappeared into the galaxy while he’s doing his magic so I made sure to add light touches of paste at the bottom of my galaxy panel too. Once that was dry, I stamped on the sentiment from the same stamp set with Versafine black ink, and Versamark for the word “Magical” then heat embossed it with Wow Embossing powder.
To finish I just glued on my little wizard and the books, which I had coloured with my Zig clean color real brushes and fussy cut with a scissors. The books images actually come from Santoro Gorjuss “New Heights” stamp which I partially stamped to get only the books. I used a small Versafine ink cube so I could get ink only to the places I wanted and not the whole stamp.
Well I hope you like what I created for this theme and I look forward to seeing what you thought of it! Please hope over to our challenge blog to link up your entries and leave my Sistahs some love too!
