Totally Papercrafts and ???

Well here is the result of today's playtime!! I had the urge to do something for fun - so when I saw the challenge over at Totally Papercrafts this had to be the one!!!
"A Kind of Magic"


Ironically enough I was looking in my digi-dowload file and I came across this image which was from Inklined - he is called James and I think he's a real cutie!!



I knew exactly what I wanted to do with him - create a little magical scene. I stamped him on Copic papers, masked him then first brayered the background with Adirondak inks. Whilst he was still masked I overstamped with the trees and the Castle. I also stamped some silhouette leaves at the top and around the sides. I coloured James with Copics and put a sort of twirly halo of glittery shapes around him. I ended up using more than I had intended due to dropping my small inkpad onto the image/s - upside down - of course!!
The small Crystals as they're called are by Jones Tones and are actually silver but the light has caught them and multi-coloured them. Do I like it - yes I do although I think the background at the roots of the large tree could be darker - it wouldn't be me if I didn't find faults somewhere, but all in all a satisfying playtime. I had thought this would fit another challenge but can't for the life in me remember which - should I search - maybe!!

Hope you all have a brilliant weekend - weather doesn't look too promising here so that means more crafting time.
