inky paws sketch challenge #3

time to get your paws inky again! newton's nook is having they're 3rd inky paws sketch challenge! yahoo!

super fab sketch right? yeah, it's pretty great! and so fun!

while i was thinking about my card for this challenge, i remembered that the wizard in the new magical dreams stamp set has always reminded me of dumbledore - wait for it, you see it too now, right?? :)
ha ha! anyway, one of my all time, hands down, favorite revelations from any book, ever in the world, was when snape tells dumbledore he's still in love with harry potter's (unfortunately, deceased) mother. here's a recap:

yeah, insert heartbreaking here. sigh.
anyway those were the inpsirations for my card:

i colored the wizard (read: dumbledore) with some copic markers and popped him up for dimension.
i also added some stars to the grey background with my versamark ink. LOVE the subtle hint of the stars with that ink. oh, and those are the stars from campfire tails! hello two stamp sets working well together! :)

i used some alpha tabs ($1 at the target dollar section - score!) and some flowy thickers for the sentiment.

so that's it! a super fun and personal card that i can't wait to send to my best harry potter fan friend! :) ha ha!
i hope you are able to get your paws inky and join in on the fun! 


  1. LOVE the Harry Potter theme! Thanks so much for playing along again with our challenge!

  2. I thought he looked like dumbledore too...but maybe that's just because I've spend waaaaay too many hours obsessing over harry potter :) anyways, love the card!!! Such an awesome ideas :)


thank you SO much for taking the time to comment! just like that, you made my day! :D
