A Picture Perfect Discovery

Today the Guardian of Glitter found an ancient relic in the dusty catacombs beneath the Guild Hall. We weren’t quite sure what it was for, and spent the day trying to figure out what magic made it work. We pressed one of the buttons and a bright flash of light lit up the room. When my eyes readjusted to the light after the blinding flash, I saw a small blue bird standing atop the device. “Where did that come from?” I inquired. The Guardian of Glitter shook her head, obviously as confused as I was.

I started this card by colouring the freebie Birdie Brown image using Prismacolor pencils and inking around the edges with Distress Ink. I cut the photo corners for it and the larger ones using the Art Philosophy cartridge. I chose some background paper from a pack of paper I procured from Wal-Mart last summer and have since only used one sheet from. Now I’m proudly up to two, earning myself -235 hoarder exp points and going down a level (which in this case is a good thing). The word mom I cut using the Storybook cartridge. I then embossed it and the stripped piece of paper using my Cuttlebug.

On the inside I cut some more photo corners using the Art Philosophy cartridge. The sentiment was stamped using the Lawn Fawn “Jessie’s ABCs” and “Say Cheese” sets. I stamped the camera from the “Say Cheese” set in light pink so it would be subtle enough to write a personal message overtop.

I stamped the envelope using the Dylusions “Doodle Parts” set.

This little bird will develop in the following challenges:

The small bird let out an unnaturally loud squawk and we heard a pop and the sound of glass breaking. It looked at us solemnly before spreading its wings and flying out the window. When I looked at the device upon where it had been perched, I saw the glass lens was shattered. Whatever this machine was for, we will now never know.
