  1. Create an A2 card from Navy cardstock.
  2. Resize and print digital stamp onto white cardstock using a laser printer.
  3. Color with Copic markers, fussy-cut, and edge with a black marker
  4. Add glitter pen to the globe on the staff. When dry, add several coats of Glaze pen to add dimension and shine.
  5. Set aside the wizard, who can cast spells while waiting for a background to be created for him. Alternately, he can play with the cat and bats while waiting.
  6. Smoosh Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide ink onto a craft mat. Spritz with water, drag the piece of mixed media paper through the ink, and heat set. Repeat this step until pleased with the result. 
  7. Repeat Step #5 with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink. Heat set thoroughly until 1000% bone dry.
  8. Temporarily adhere the Oxided panel to a piece of scrap paper. Tape the stencil down and lightly trace the bricks with the Sketch and Wash pencil.
  9. Sponge Hickory Smoke Distress ink over the stencil. The ink is sufficiently wet to slightly disperse the Sketch and Wash pencil.
  10. Remove stencil and use the Grey Multiliner pen to outline the bricks. Smudge the ink with your hand as you go to soften the edges. Add cracks, shadows, and suchlike to the bricks and the mortar using the same pen, smudging as you go.
  11. Tape one of the the Arched Window Nestabilities dies in place and run the panel through the die-cut machine.
  12. Cut a small rectangle from navy cardstock.
  13. Using one of the Circle Nestabilities, die-cut white cardstock.
  14. Die-cut black cardstock with the cat and bat dies.
  15. Adhere the circle to the navy cardstock, then adhere the bats as desired.
  16. Adhere the navy cardstock behind the Arched Window aperture in the brick-stencilled paper.
  17. Adhere the cat onto the windowsill of the Arched Window.
  18. Adhere the Wizard as desired.
  19. Adhere the card front to the card.
