CCEE2031 Happy Birthday, Harry Potter

I'm winding up my month as hostess for the CCEE Stampers with a challenge close to my heart.  As you are most probably aware, I am a big Harry Potter fan.  Tomorrow (7/31) is his birthday.  I asked the team to create a card to celebrate this event -- something magical or just a birthday card.

Actually, I don't have a card for this challenge.  I recently watched a wonderful video on how to color these Paper Nest Dolls stamps with Copic markers.  Tina Day Goodwin is a marvelous colorist, and I got several tips from her video, including how to make those folds in their robes.  On the video she made two bookmarks, so I also made two bookmarks.

Stop over at the CCEE Stampers blog to see how the rest of the team wished Harry a happy birthday!

Lois, I just love these bookmarks. Great colors and patterns used on them too. This challenge was very challenging for me, and I had to do a little researching on Pinterest for some recreation I could do as I had no HP stamps or dies. Thanks for all of the great July challenges!!
