A Warlock Called "The Kid"

It took two months of searching, tracking and meticulous research, but we finally managed to track down the dark magic wielding painter that had been trapping poor souls in his graffiti. It turns out he is a warlock who calls himself The Kid because of his youthful appearance. Warlocks age differently than humans, and after some careful research we were able to pin this one around the 200 year old mark - still young for a warlock. Guild Apprentice Lindsay was able to ascertain his location in the vagrant town of Whitehall. We then used Guild Mercenary Kimmy’s seedy underground contacts to find the warlock’s exact hideout within Whitehall. The Guardian of Glitter brewed us all some strength and defence tonics while we donned our armour and sharpened our blades.

This card was created for the Creative Card Crew’s Masculine challenge. You can win a $15 voucher from our sponsor, Scrapping Center, who sell a multitude of crafty items, like the Prismacolor Pencils I used to colour my image from The Octopode Factory. After he was done, I set him in a safe place and began work on the background. I chose some brick wall patterned paper, then used the Dylusions “Letter Jumble” stencil and a couple shots of spray ink to make it look like a graffiti ridden wall. This earned me +492 hooliganism exp points, which I’m sure I’ll put to good use. I cut the garbage can out using the Give a Hoot cartridge and crumpled up some bits of dictionary paper I had leftover in my recycle bin from this card. The sentiment I stamped from the Dylusions “Say It How It Is” set. 

On the inside I stamped the sentiment using the Dylusions “Say What You Mean” set and the My Pink Stamper “Family and Friends” set. I embossed the sides with my Cuttlebug, then added a leftover scrap of the brick wall paper.

I stamped the envelope using the Dylusions “Further Around the Edge” set, because nothing is worse than a plain, sad white envelope.

This card will also be getting up to some shenanigans in the following challenges:  
Cute Card Thursday Challenge #260: Anything Goes
Love to Create Challenge #57: Anything Goes
One Crazy Stamper March “Anything Goes” Challenge
Challenges 4 Everybody Challenge #16: Anything Goes
Spark Your Creativity Now! Challenge #7: Anything Goes
The Octopode Friday Challenge “Going Green” (if his shirt isn’t enough green, feel free to delete my entry)

All five of us set out to Whitehall, the tonics running through our veins. We found The Kid in an alley outside his hideout with his fingers sparking, indicating he had just performed some magic. Guild Apprentice Lindsay, Mercenary Kimmy and I took position up in the rooftops whilst the Lady Commander of Copics and Guardian of Glitter blocked the alley entrance. The Lady Commander sounded her battlehorn and from the rooftops we loosed a shower of arrows down on the warlock. One managed to strike him, infusing his blood with a special sedative the Guardian of Glitter had developed. The Kid collapsed to the ground, the potion working quickly. With no time to waste, we loaded him into wagon that was attached to Ruffles and rode back to the Guild Hall. There, we would be able to restrain him properly and force him to release all the people he had trapped in his fence graffiti earlier this year.
