William Wizard on Throwback Tuesday

Hello lovely peeps

Today's stamp oldie is William Wizard by Francoise Read for Woodware from 2006.

I stamped him onto Elegance Satin 160gsm paper with Black Memento Ink and coloured in with Promarkers/Flexmarkers and Graph'Its.
Skin: Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush
Jumper: 8290, Olive Green, Soft Khaki
Cloak and Hat: 9209, 9205, 9203, Umber, Khaki, Pastel Beige
Trousers and Shoes: Cool Grey 1-4

Next I cut around him, leaving a thin white border. The stamp actually comes with a cat peeking out from behind the cloak but I just wanted the wizard to I cut the cat away.

This left the image looking a bit odd without a white border on the left hand side, so I added a strip of white paper on the back and cut around that to restore the white border.

Other Ingredients:
Paper from My Minds Eye
Black card
Happy Birthday die from Dovecraft

What a sweet little wizard! Your coloring is amazing! Super job on the white border, I never would have guessed it was pieced! Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber this challenge.

So cute! I love your little wizard card!! Your white border solution was lots of work but totally paid off! I usually place tape over the stamp that I don't want to ink up, ink it up then remove the tape before stamping. Thank you for playing with us at Retro Rubber and hope you will join us again soon!

Great card, love that Wizard, he is awesome..I realised that I need a Wizard stamp as soon as I saw yours, clever trick for adding the missing border, I trim off things all the time and never thought of this fix. Thanks for joining us this time at Retro Rubber. Claire DT

Katrina, your William wizard is shades of Harry Potter! Wonderful fella! Very clever to put the white outline back on the right side. Thanks so much for playing along with Retro Rubber this challenge. Hope to see you in our gallery often!
