Mail Call

Salutations, fellow adventurers. Today, rather than participating in any campaigns alongside my crafting kin, I had the distasteful task of collecting the post from the rookery. Not only am I terrified of birds (I know, I's hard to believe the Guild Master would be scared of those "fowl" creatures - haha), but that is also the dirtiest place in the Guild Hall. Blech. As I was carefully removing each scroll from the birds, inspiration suddenly struck.

I was truly impressed with the outcome. This is one of my favourite cards I've done in a while, earning myself +120 bonus exp points. Hard to believe it was all done with rectangular pieces of paper and ink...not one die cut on there - BAM....another +80 exp points.

The background was done with a harlequin pattern stencil I have and Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Tea Dye & Vintage Photo). I am really loving the stencils lately, and do believe I shall be purchasing more with my plunder from the latest quest I've completed. The telephone image came from the "9 to 5" October Afternoon stamp set and the rest was stamped using the Lawn Fawn "You've Got Mail" set. I am IN LOVE with this set! (You can tell this because I wrote it bigger). I can see myself using that postcard stamp for sooooo many different cards, racking up some massive combo points. 

This card will be entered into the challenge over at Paper Playtime #79 - Say It With Sentiments - Miss You Card 

Well I've come to the end of my parchment. I'd best go feed the razor wings before they start eating the birds again.....on second thought......
