Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I were shopping in the market square, buying some more unnecessary paper packages that the Paper Weaver had just created, when we came across a vagrant child begging for coins in the streets. He was dressed in old looking winter clothes, most of the items moth eaten or torn. The Lady Commander was about to give the child a coin when I placed a hand on her wrist, stopping her. She looked at me with questioning eyes. “That is no beggar child, sister,” I said slowly, never taking my eyes from the boy. Angela looked from me and back to the youngster. She opened her mouth to ask a question, but before she could, I tossed a handful of magical powder at the child. As he started coughing, his glamour slowly stripped away. Beside me I heard a sharp intake of breath from the Lady Commander as she realized what she had almost done.
It was time to use up yet another panel from the ugly Donna Salazar paper I had purchased.
The first two cards I made with this paper are here and here.
This one went together pretty quickly. First I stamped Oliver from The
Greeting Farm’s “Fuzzy Wuzzy” set onto watercolour paper. I then
water-coloured him using Distress Markers and my Hydra Brush, earning me
+319 water elemental exp points. I stamped some snowflakes onto the
background, but it ended up you couldn’t really see them anyways. To
finish off the card with some embellishments, I used a couple brads and
some thread. Done and done. Three panels of the paper gone! Only three
more to go!
The inside sentiment came from the My Pink Stamper “Christmas Wishes” set.
On the envelope I stamped some Christmas foliage using a Recollections brand set.
This card will be begging for a win in the following challenges:

there once was an innocent, but shabby, looking boy now stood a slimey
Serpentine Warlock. These vile creatures are known for tricking people
into giving them possessions such as coins or trinkets which they then
use in dark magic rituals to posses the victim. “If you want to live to
see another day, you’d best make yourself scarce, warlock,” I said
placing my hand meaningfully on the hilt of my sword.
hissed in my face, toxic spittle hitting my cheeks. “If I ever see your
face, glamoured or not, in this village again, I will cut off your head
and feed it to my hellhounds!” I shouted after him as he slithered
away. “Let’s go, sister.” I steered Angela, visibly shaken in the
direction of the Guild Hall. She looked as though she could use a cup of tea...or five.
