Magworts School of Wizardry!

Hi everyone, hope you're having a lovely Saturday so far! 

A Magnolia faux book to share today and using Magnolia stamps to create Magworts School of Wizardry and I enjoyed bringing these two Edwin's and Tilda into my Potteresque scene :D. This is the most stamps I've ever masked together, twelve were used in all, so it took some working out to get the order of the layers of masking and stamping.

The book is an SVG Cuts cutting file, the star tag and black lace at the bottom are Magnolia DooHickey dies, the black title letters are a Tim Holtz strip die cut and sentiments were computer generated. Everything is watercoloured on the scene with distress ink markers, watercolour markers and crayons. 

To get a nice even black colour on negative stamps such as the Magnolia skyline houses at the top when stamping onto watercolour paper I to stamp and then go over any mottled or not quite black enough areas with a black permanent pen.

I'm entering my project in the Tilda's Town challenge where this week the theme is 'back to school'.

And the scene you created is beyond words amazing - AND cool! Now that's a hard thing to make with Maggie's I think, they are usually sweet :) Now they are a little bit of both!
