More Than Just A Harry Potter Birthday Card

Harry Potter Birthday

It is time for another Pixie Dust Studio Challenge and this is a FUN one!!! We are sticking our noses in books and heading to the movies! The challenge is to create a project based on a book or a movie! You don't have to use Pixie Dust images to participate, but, if you want to there are TONS of choices for great book and movie characters! I chose to play with the Harry Potter images and I had a BLAST!

Harry Potter Birthday card (detail)

I colored all four of the character images and two of the critter images so I have Dumbledore, Harry, Hermione, Ron, Crookshanks, and Hedwig! HOW FUN ARE THESE??? I used Stamp'n Up! watercolor crayons, CTMH watercolor pencils, and the ink pad watercolor technique to color them. Then I tucked them into the card, BUT...it's not JUST a card, folks. Nosirreeebob! It's MORE than just a card! You see, those little peeping wizards are not adhered to the card at all! They are just tucked in so....

Harry Potter Paper Dolls

They can come out to play! Yup! They are standing paper doll figures that can be a gift and a card all in one! YAY!!! Crookshanks and Hedwig were simply attached with a low-tac adhesive so they can come off, as well.

I gave them simply cardstock easel backs to make them stand. So fun! It's like MAGIC! (Or not, but you know how I get with these things.... HA!)

Harry Potter Birthday Card w/ Paper Dolls

SO...you don't have to go all nuts like this, you can stick with a simple card if you like, but I would love to see some of my happy readers participate in the challenge! If you are looking for some fun images to play with Pixie Dust Studio has Harry Potter (obviously), Alice in Wonderland (including an AMAZING Hatter!), Romeo and Juliet, The Notebook, some sparkly vampire kid (tee-hee...yes, Twilight, too), some favorite Princess stories, Wizard of Oz, Little Red Riding Hood, and even MORE! Seriously...lots of inspiration! Head on over to the challenge blog to check out what the other Pixies have created and to link up YOUR take on this fun book/movie challenge!!!

Happy Thursday!
