Mad Morgdan's Mushroomy Birthday

Welcome to the Guild Hall. The Lady Commander of Copics and I have just returned from our quest in the Mushroom Hills. We went in search of a rare and mystical mushroom that would increase the size of whomever ingested it. Unfortunately, we did not come across that mushroom, but a colony of sentient mushrooms who were in the midst of hosting a nameday celebration for an odd chap named Morgdan. It was a strange sight to behold as Morgdan danced amongst the scared looking mushrooms by himself to non-existent music.

I created this card for my little brother’s 25th nameday. I started by making the background using a stamp from the Tim Holtz “Reflections” stamp set that is full of background stamps in “mirror writing”. I also used a few stamps from the Dylusions “Bordering on the Edge” set to complete the background. Next I used the Lawn Fawn “Say Cheese” set to stamp the polaroid. I stamped the Stampotique “Hunk” image and coloured him with Distress Markers. I felt he needed a birthday hat, so used the Dylusions “Doolally Dorris” set to stamp one out for him. I then used the Dylusions “Further Around the Edge” set to add the borders next to Hunk. The sentiment came from the My Creative Time’s “Wow! So Many Candles” set. To finish off the card, I stamped some random wings and mushrooms from the “Doolally Dorris” set. I decided the mushrooms needed some googley eyes and was instantly pleased with myself for making this decision. It also earned me +291 anthropomorphization exp points.

On the inside I stamped some more little mushrooms and gave one wings using a moustache I turned upside down from Dylusions “Christmas Accessories” set. The sentiment is from the My Pink Stamper “Birthday Crazy” set. I actually posted the card on time, however my brother is not known for checking his mail on a regular basis, so I was anticipating him not seeing it until after his birthday had passed (lol).

I went a little mushroom crazy with this card and stamped a whole bunch more on the envelope to make it match the front of the card.

This fun-guy will be popping up in the following challenges:
Desert Islands Crafters Challenge #52: (used #1-no flowers, #2-use black or red or teal, #5-use a birthday sentiment)

The Lady Commander and I started to get the impression that Morgdan wasn’t quite right in the head as he started snapping pictures of himself and giving them to the now terrified mushrooms. We slowly backed away from the spectacle and fled the Mushroom Hills for the sanity of the Guild Hall.
