Spells for beginners.

Morning All, its Wednesday so its time for a new challenge over at I Love Promarkers.
This weeks theme is ANYTHING GOES so no excuses not to play along and even better you could win some Dr Digi images - which you all know I love!

The image I've used is called Spells for Beginners. I was inspired to use the Kraft and gold from the Tag You're it challenge and, somewhat unusually for me, I have used quite muted and pastel tones.

The Gold velum is from Allison Kreft and both the Dotty and striped papers in the pale pink and grey are from My Minds Eye Chalk Studio. I used a sizzix tag die to cut both the papers and then used a diamante brad to hold the Green chevron ribbon in place.
I have used a rub on greeting to say Happy Birthday which is from Pebbles. The other touches of gold are a thin washi tape which I bought from Hobbycraft.
To add a little bit more detail - I put some glaze on the ball at the top of his staff which I then sprinkled with Cosmic shimmer to make it glisten. I also used a little gold pen to add shine to his spell book.

I used these promarkers & Flexmarkers to colour the image -
Skin - Antique White, Blush, Soft Peach, Coral & Spice.
Beard -  Warm Greys
Eyes - Frozen Lake
Book & Ball - Aniseed, Lime Zest & Pear Green
Belt & Hat detail - Cerise, Baby pink & Antique Pink. 
Cloak & Staff - Tan, March Hare & Raw Sienna
