Flashback Friday - Happy Birthday Harry! + video

Hello friends!!  Yay for Friday!
Are you ready for another Flashback?  Well how about a flashback to Harry Potter?!
Today is actually the birthday of the character of Harry Potter (click his name for information.) as well as the creator of it all J.K. Rowling, the author.
When my boys were grade school age, they loved Harry Potter and I had to take them to see every movie that came out!  They read the books and my younger son wanted to dress up like Harry Potter for every Halloween! LOL!  Of course I enjoyed it right along with them.

So I thought it would only be appropriate to make a fun card in Harry Potter's honor:
This guy isn't exactly the true Harry Potter, but I think he's so cute! :)  I had bought this stamp a few years back when it came out over at Riley & Company.  This guy is called none other than Riley Pottermoose!  LOL!

I've got lots of fun things going on with this card.  Some of which is captured with an "experiment" that I did and I went ahead and included it on my card.  The sentiment comes from Whimsy Stamps  (Party Mini Letter Seals) and was cut out with a circle punch.  I sponged around the edges with some purple ink and I've also added some glitter to it as well.

It was an "after-thought" to add the silver strip line Dazzle stickers to the borders as well as adding some loops behind the sentiment after it was completely finished, but you can see the details of all of this in the video that I've created using a jar of Perfect Pearls by Ranger on my design.

And here's a SECOND separate video that shows you how I've colored this fun image:

Here is a closer view of the coloring as well as some details of the shimmer:
Of course it's always so cool looking in person and you can obviously see the shimmery look of the Perfect Pearls as well as all of the sparkle and details.  I've added some glossy accents to his glasses that you can see better in this photo.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I sure hope that you've enjoyed my card and video and got inspired to try out different ideas in your stamping too! :)  If you'd like to see some more ideas using Perfect Pearls, let me know!  There are so many things you can do with them!

Have a great day!
