Attack of 'Ol Spindly Arms

Welcome to the Guild Hall. Don’t mind the mess, today there was a bit of a commotion around the here, as the Lady Commander of Copics accidentally inhaled a large quantity of fae dust. She was working in her crafting chambers when her mischievous feline knocked over a jar of the volatile substance, releasing a silvery-blue cloud of the powder. Upon inhaling it, she immediately became giddy, jumping and twirling across the Guild Hall. Anyone she passed, she stopped and subjected them to a giant, bone-crushing embrace. I don’t know where her spindly arms found the strength for a such a feat. As numerous house gnomes and passing animals were also subjected to this, I rushed to the labs to create an antidote as quickly as possible.

The card was created for the Just Some Lines “For a Child” challenge happening now! You can use the freebie provided (or any Just Some Lines image) and win some digis from the Just Some Lines store!

I started out by colouring the image using Prismacolors and inking the edges with Distress Ink. I dug out an old paper pad that I’ve had forever and don’t really use, because, honestly, I’m not too keen on most of the paper in it (don’t ask me why I bought was probably on sale). Anyways...I chose some paper from that pad to use as the background. I then used some glitter paper (again...something I bought and baaaaaarely ever use) and embossed it with a flower embossing folder. I cut the shape for the sentiment (stamped using the My Craft Spot “New Arrivals” set) using the Art Philosophy cartridge.

On the inside I used more of the background paper (may as well try and use it up) and stamped the sentiment using the My Pink Stamper “Family & Friends” set onto the shape I cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge.

I stamped some flowers on the envelope to make it all matchy-match (sorta) and that was that.

This card will squeeze into the following challenges:

Luckily the antidote proved simple to create and I was able to produce it quickly and administer it to the Lady Commander before she could do any more damage.
