Anything Goes DT - Add Some Metal

Good morning blogger friends...

Hope you've all had a lovely weekend. The sun has been shining here, so let's hope that spring is definitely on its way.

I had a great day on Saturday. I travelled to The Craft Den in Sheffield for an altered mirror workshop with Hels Sheridan. The workshop was fantastic. I've not done any altered art before so it did take me out of my comfort zone, but was great fun. A few of the other DT members were there too;
Nikki, Tamara and Annette, so it was lovely to meet them. Annette had even travelled from Sweden!  I mustn't forget Lynne, the owner of The Craft Den and the Anything Goes Challenge blog who was so welcoming that we could have kept on chatting all evening. 

Anyway onto this weeks challenge at Anything Goes and its
 'Add some metal'

This was the card I made Leonie for her 18th Birthday. She's mad about the Harry Potter books and films!

The images are by Tiddly Inks and are Wizard and Wizardette. 
You get two wizards, one with glasses and one without. So Harry and Ron!

I got the idea from Alyce who has done a fantastic colouring video using Wizardette to show how to colour glowing objects. As soon as I saw it I new I had to see if Tiddly Inks did a wizard image so that I could do a Harry Potter theme. I even put on a little 'Hedwig' Metal charm and the telegram he delivers.

I've coloured them with Copics :

Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21
Harry's Hair: E43, E44, E47, E49
Ron's Hair: YR000, YR02, YR04, E15
Hermione's Hair: E13, E15, E18
Scarf: Y11, R15, Y17 R22, R46, R59
Capes: W1, W3, W5, W7
Trousers: C1,C3, C5, C7
Wand Glow: YG00, YG05, YG23, YG67

They were just so fun to colour too and they're my first Tiddly Inks.

The papers are Prima Rondelle and have been distressed with a Tim Holtz tool.
The flowers and leaves have all been made with dies and all the papers were edged with walnut stain.
The sentiment is from LOTV.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges...
