Magical New Year

Hello everyone!  It's been a while since I have had a post.   The holiday season was so hectic I didn't have a chance to do much crafting :(  But,  I thoroughly enjoyed my time with family and friends and that's what the holidays are all about.   With that being said, on to the crafty stuff!

I did manage to make a birthday card for a friend of mine in December and thought I would share it with you.  I got this stamp, appropriately named Wiz, in one of my Blitsy hauls.    He's a Mo Manning design for Stampingbella.  I knew I had to have him the minute I saw him.

I stamped him on Copic Xpressit paper and then colored him with Copics.  After coloring him in this first time, I know there are a few things I will do differently next time.  Like highlighting his crystal ball after doing the background, not before.   I accented his electrical charge for his crystal ball with little dots using my Gelly Roll pen.  The globe itself is coated with Wink of Stella and then covered in Glossy Accents.  My photography doesn't do it much justice.  I thought it turned out pretty cool.

There are a few challenges I will be entering my Wiz in, which I will list below, along with the supplies I used.  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and wishing you all a magical 2016!
