Ron, Harry and Hermione

Okay I am a Harry Potter Fan I have read all the books and have seen the movies.  I was thrilled to learn that J.K. Rowling is writing another novel this one is for adults and is supposed to be very different to the Harry Potter series, I for one will be checking that out when it is released.  I think these images of Ron, Harry and Hermione from Tiddly Inks are the sweetest.  I decided to make this card gender neutral.

I used:
Digital image - Wizard and Wizardette from Tiddly Inks
Copics from Mad for Markers
Hair - Ron YR18, YR15, YR12, Harry E29, E27, E25,  Hermione E53, E27, E25
Skin - E11, E00 and R20.
Clothes, Scarves and Shoes - C9, C7, C5, C3. E35, R27, R29, Y13, Y15
Lavender Spica (Thanks to Gin :), purple and rainbow kindy Glitz

I am entering this in the following challenges:
The Paper Shelter Anything Goes
Totally Gorjuss Challenge 122 Anything goes with a button
Polka Doodles Lets hear it for the boys

Monochromatic Gonna Miss You

I have never coloured a card with just one colour before so this is something new.  I thought the monochromatic colouring would really suit a vintage style card but I just had to add a hint of green and pink to the roses on her hat. I completed this card for two challenges :
Mad for Markers Monochromatic March
Tiddly Inks Fabric Fun

I used
Copics from Mad for Markers  C9, C7, C5, C3, C2, C1, 0, G24, G20, R83, R85
Digi Stamp from Tiddly Inks Aida Gonna Miss You
Paper from Kaisercraft Timeless Collection
The following embellishments are from Wild Orchid Crafts: Guipure white lace, Vintage seam binding in pink tulip, Mulberry paper roses and White Pearl Spray.
