Last night the Lady Commander of Copics and I were at Salty Ocean’s Stain, one of the taverns on the river’s edge, located in the Acrylic Block district. As we were enjoying a flagon of mustard seed ale, two inked up old salts were swapping stories of the mad things they’d seen while working along the great river. The one sporting a bushy beard who called himself “Tumble” told a tale of a girl he’d seen drink a beverage offered to her by one of the fae. The Lady Commander and I sucked in a breath at this and shook our heads. Every adventurer knows to never accept food or drink from a fairy. Tumble said the girl went mad, thinking she could see butterflies everywhere, chasing after them until eventually she walked right off a cliff to her death following the non-existent creatures.
This ATC was created for the Just Some Lines reminder post about the Earth Day Challenge happening now!
I made the base for the ATC by cutting up an old tissue box I dug out of my recycle bin, earning myself +317 waste reduction exp points. I liked it because it reminded me of a sunset, which I thought would make a good backdrop for the image I chose. I used the Emo Happy Day image, colouring her with Prismacolors and cutting her out. The butterflies that come with her are waaaaaay too small to cut out by hand, so I quickly cut some using the Art Philosophy cartridge. I also used that cartridge to cut the “grass” at the bottom. I stamped the sentiment using the My Pink Stamper “Family & Friends” set.
This ATC will be entered into the following challenges:
A Gem of a Challenge #77: Going Green (recycled the tissue box)Dream Valley Challenge #55: Things With Wings
After swapping stories with Tumble and his nameless companion and drinking a flagon too many of mustard seed ale, the Lady Commander and I took our leave and stumbled back to the Guild Hall, musing about how foolish folk could be. Accepting drink from one of the fae...honestly....
