Every Cloud...

Today we had a visit from one of the Fallen Angel Children. This outcast group lives in the Swollen Hills to the east, tucked away from the mortals. Most of them are no-good miscreants, just out to make life difficult for every creature they encounter, but Xavier is one of the good ones. He brought me rumours he had heard whispered amongst his clansmen about the fabled Fallen Sword of Justice. Should one of the evil fallen angels get ahold of this weapon, it would spell disaster for the mortals of the realm.


I started this card by cutting out the shape using the Art Philosophy cartridge. I then stamped the image from The Greeting Farm’s “Sweet & Toxic” set. I coloured him using Prismacolors (as usual), earning me +381 predictability exp points. I then used a stamp from the Lawn Fawn “My Cup of Tea” set to stamp those blue “swirls” around him to try and fill up the vast white space. I wasn’t incredibly happy with how it turned out, but like a true guildy, I soldiered on. I cut a cloud out using the Create-A-Critter set and stamped the sentiment from the “Sweet & Toxic” set. Some ribbon, brads and that weird “netting” finished off the front of this card.


On the inside I cut another cloud from the Create-A-Critter cartridge then stamped the sentiment using the Unity “Nicest Place to Be” set. (click on the picture to make it BIG to read the words).


This BA angel will float on into the following challenges:
Desert Island Crafters Challenge #52: used #1 (no flowers), #2 (use, black or red or teal), #3: no markers and #8 (go dimensional)


The Lady Commander of Copics, Guardian of Glitter and I armed ourselves then set out with Xavier to find the legendary sword. Hopefully we can find it based on his scant information before one of his evil fallen brethren do.
