Happy Birthday Muggle!

Good morning! Roxanne here today with a card that will make all you Harry Potter fans out there swoon. I must admit, this project knocked off my own socks.

Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE, LOVE, LOOOOOOOVE Harry Potter. I'd turn my room into a Hogwarts dream if I could. No joke.

So I was sitting wondering what type of project I was going to make for my post this month and I grabbed the owl from the Lawn Fawn Winter Owl and knew exactly what I wanted to do. I mean, he's wearing a scarf, so that right there screams HP to me. I cannot be the only one ;)

Once I started coloring him, the idea to put him on a broom came to mind. Then it was like a domino effect and I came up with this...

I made him into Harry Potter playing Quidditch. I thought this is perfect to give to the Harry Potter fan in my life, or just keep for myself to display. Either way! 

For the background, I used Distress Inks in Dusty Concord and Tumbled Glass and Memento in Nautical Blue with craft sponges and I made this magical looking sky. 

I then took some yellow patterend paper I had and cut a skinny strip for the stand and then two dies to make the opening of the Quidditch goal. I glued that down to the sky scene. For the sentiment, I took the happy birthday from the Lawn Fawn Party Animal set and stacked them. Under that, I used Milo's ABC's for spelling out MUGGLE! I gave the Muggle a bit of a shadow with some white ink behind it. 

I used the broom from the Lawn Fawn Critters in Costume, colored in with my Spetrum Noir Alcohol Markers and fussy cut it out. I used trimmed down foam adhesive behind it to give it dimension. 
Then I colored in Harry. I used a fine tip marker to draw on the scar to give it that special touch! Harry sports his scar, so this is no different! I placed him on the broom with some more foam adhesive. 

For the stars, I used some small rhinestones I had to make it sparkle a bit and bring some more life to this card. 

I hope you enjoyed my project today as much as I enjoyed making it! Thanks for stopping by.
