A colouring marathon

Hello lovely people,

Last weekend I had a rare quiet weekend and tucked myself away in my craft room for a good long colouring session - happy days :-D
I thought these Tiddly Inks images would be perfect for my nephew's 8th birthday card as he loves Harry Potter and these do bear a passing resemblance!

Now, I could have chosen just one character but no, I decided to be 'clever' and merge the 3 together... cue LOTS of colouring time!
After all that colouring time I decided to keep the rest of the card super simple and just used a font I found online for an authentic looking sentiment.

Card recipe;
Images: Tiddly Inks - Wizard (2 versions) and Wizardette
DP: Bo Bunny - Timepiece

Copic colours;
Skin: E0000/000/00/51 & R30
Harry's hair: E57/47/49
Hermione's hair: E41/42/43/44 & Y21
Ron's hair: YR12/14 & E15/17
Cloaks: T10/8/7/6/5
Trousers: T6/5/4/3
Scarves: R46/59 & Y15/17
Glow: YG00/06/23/17
Ground: T0/1/2/3/4

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;
1.  Tiddly Inks (anything goes)
2.  Papertake Weekly (anything goes +/- Halloween treat bag)
3.  ABC (w is for words)
4.  Simon Says Stamp (going dotty)

This weekend I am relaxing after going to a wedding on Friday but also have to write a presentation for a job interview on Tuesday - eek!  It's too hard to do all at once so I have been doing a bit then 'rewarding' myself with a little bit of time in my craft room :-)

Thanks for visiting and Happy World Card Making Day!

Fabulous wizardy card Kat... and such perfect merging too.... and also, that colouring of their robes... so difficult to get the right grey/black and you've managed it perfectly! Think he'll love his card.

Hope the presentation goes well tomorrow!
