Spy Bots??

Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I went to the market square to select a nice bouquet of flowers to decorate the Guild Hall, as our lady mother was coming to pay us a visit. We went to the flower stand but there was already a patron ahead of us. She had eyes as large as saucers, and looked a little overwhelmed.
“I don’t know what to choose,” she said with no inflection in her voice, which was a little unnerving.
“Roses are always nice,” the flower seller kindly suggested.
The wide-eyed woman just blinked at her, an uncomfortable silence hanging in the air.
“I don’t know what to choose,” she repeated in her robot-like voice.
My sister and I exchanged a knowing glance. Something was definitely amiss.

I started this card by making the background using Dylusions spray inks and the “Luscious Leaves” stencil. Setting that aside to dry I coloured the “Dorothy” image from The Octopode Factory using Prismacolor pencils. Using the Art Philosophy cartridge I cut out the flowers then stamped the images using the coordinating Close To My Heart set, earning myself +420 coordination exp points. The word ‘mom’ I cut using the Nifty Fifties cartridge. I finished off the front with some yellow ribbon I got from the bargain bin at Michaels ages ago. I don’t really use it, because I just don’t like it that much - lol. I think it’s the “hooks” on the sides of it. They don’t do it for me...but, alas, it was cheap, so it found its way into my hoard.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment using The Greeting Farm’s “Furever” set and added another flower.

I stamped more flowers on the envelope to make everything match.

This card will surprisingly find itself in the following challenges:
Love to Create Challenge #62: Bingo Card (used - flowers, diecuts/punches and ribbon)

“I don’t know what to choose...what to choose...choose...choose...” the woman-robot thing started stuttering and sputtering. Before I could make a move, her eyes popped out of her head, hanging by wires. Smoke swirled upwards from her empty eye sockets where I could see flashing circuits inside her head. This was definitely some sort of robot. But who built it? And to what end? This seemed like just the mysterious quest for the Crafters Guild...we haven't had a good mystery to solve in ages.
