Witt & Sass Launch - Magical Creatures card

Welcome back to my blog, friends!  Hopefully you are returning to see what kind of card I am making with Witt & Sass's Magical Creatures stamp.  I have created a "Harry Potter-esque" type of card!  I decided to use the bird with a magic wand in my card.  I colored the bird, who I decided looked like Ron, with my Copic markers, giving him red hair, of course!  For a little shimmer, I used the At You Spica Glitter pens on his hair and cape, then I fussy cut him out.  I decided on this card to use a MFTs Blueprints 31 die set to help me design my card.  All of the elements on my cardbase are cut from that die set.  I also had in my stash some Game Spinners from Tim Holtz idea-ology.  I chose the antique brass finished hardware as I planned to have a somewhat distressed look to my card. 

I used some patterned paper from my stash for the background areas.  On the pink ombre paper I clear heat embossed the little flying key all over it in different directions.  I die cut the round frame piece with tabs off to the sides twice so I could have the star paper as the inside circle on my spinner apparatus.  I distressed the spinner frame with Distress Inks to all edges then glued the spinner pieces onto the pink layer.  I marked the center of the spinner, then made a hole with my pokey tool for the brad to go through.  I first placed the dial in place then put my brad's legs through the hole and then opened them on the backside of the pink panel.  I stamped the "You are..." in brown ink, then clear heat embossed it.  Next I distressed the 4 banners in the same way I did the spinner frame.  I then stamped each of the 4 character letters onto the banners and colored them with my Copics, then added some shimmer with the At You Spica Glitter pens.  I arranged them evenly across the top of the spinner and foam mounted them for a little dimension.  I added some aqua enamel dots from my stash to either side of the spinner.  I then foam mounted my "Ron" bird so he was pointing at the spinner.  Last I added the black banner that I silver embossed the word "Magical!" on from the Magical Creatures stamp set.  I adhered everything with some Fun Foam onto the stars patterned paper for more dimension, then adhered that to my A2 ivory card base that I had rounded the corners on.  And that completes my card!  I really enjoyed being a little creative with this one.  I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
