Some Peace & Quiet Is All I Seek

As the Lady Commander of Copics was busy entertaining some of her monster friends, I thought it may be a good time to retreat to the newly redesigned crafting chambers and perhaps catch up on some tasks I have been setting aside for too long. Just as I sat down at my new oaken desk, which still has that “new furniture” smell, I  heard a small sound behind me. Slowly turning in my chair I spotted one of the monster pals who had followed me into the crafting chambers. Despite the warm spring day, the little blue fellow was wearing a toque on his horned head. “Hi,” he said raising his arm straight up in the air in greeting. “Stay?” he asked, cocking his head to the side as my direwolf, Lycan is so fond of doing. I sighed and nodded my head as the creature plopped himself down on the floor.

I still had three panels of that pesky paper I didn’t like, having already used three here, here and here
I selected the panel from the bottom right and started by masking off the peace on earth part of the background paper and spraying the rest of the paper with some Perfect Pearls mist to make it look like it was snowing. 
Setting that aside to dry, I stamped the “Goat Monster” Stampotique image and coloured him with Prismacolors. I stamped the toque using the Dylusions “Christmas Accessories” set and coloured it with Prismas as well. I then cut the monster’s horns off so I could fit the hat on his head, earning myself +58 accessorization exp points. The little birds from the Lawn Fawn “Bannerific” set I stamped on patterned paper and cut out. Some brads and twine finished off the front of this card.

The sentiment inside came from the My Pink Stamper “Biggie Christmas Sentiments” set.

This creation will appear in the following challenges:

The blue beast had his bulbous eyes fixed on me with rapt attention while I worked. Eventually it became unnerving and I had to take him back down to the rest of his friends and the Lady Commander. I would have to speak with her about having all these monster friends of her’s running amok in the Guild Hall.

Hmmm . . . he looks a bit sad, maybe because you de-horned him. I really like the perfect pearls "snow" and good for you using up some paper you don't like! I've got a big stash of that stuff. I try to fit it in every once in a while, too. Cute card and thanks for playing with CSAYL.
