Copics:  Cauldron: YR24, YR23, Y15, Y11, Y00  Stamp potion with Black Soot Ranger Distress Ink. It stays wet longer. Sprinkle "Stuck on You powder and shake excess powder off.  Heat emboss.  Apply Stampee foil over the top of the potion.  Remove foil and place image in a paper sandwich and iron on both sides or run through a laminator.   peal foil off image and PRESTO!  You have a really cool holographic page!

Cut focal image with a rectangle Nestabilties die, flip image over, apply a tan mat and emboss image using an A plate, B plate, image, tan mat and B plate.  This step will make a very nice  embossed edge to your focal image.  Sponge Memento Potter's Clay  to left upper corner and right bottom corner of focal image.  Cute a focal image mat using a Deckled Rectangle Nestabilities die.  Color the grass using G28, YG63 and G40 Copic Markers.  

Cut the top card layer in squares and position over your base layer of Chocolate Kiss.  Be sure to allow your Base layer to show through around each square.  I had some extra space  in the middle so I applied a brown ribbon with a layer of green ribbon. Layer your base layer to your  card base and apply your  top layer and focal image.  Apply  green embellishments.  

I hope you enjoyed this fun little wizard card!   Thank you for stoping by and come back soon,  I will post a  picture of a Stampscape image in a couple days.  The link will send you to a detailed tutorial for my Stampscape card!

  1. Awesome card, and love how you break down the copic colors for newbies like me :)

  2. Marie, Great job on your card. Love the colors you used. Good idea to use the That Stampee Foil made a great design on whatever is bubbling in the pot. Liked how you did the background also having it not be so stright that makes a great look. You colored your Cauldron super I just love how it shines.
