Flamingo Friends Appear

Greetings traveller. We may as well chat out here on the grounds, as the Guild Hall is sweltering hot. No one was prepared for this sudden change in temperature, and the house gnomes had yet to fill the ice fans to keep the Guild Hall cool. It is much too hot for adventuring, so us guildys have been hanging out on the grounds, enjoying the breeze. Some strange pink birds have started appearing along with the heat. The Guardian of Glitter is wary of them, mistrusting their smiling faces.

I started this ATC by inking a white piece of paper with yellow and blue Distress Ink to create a kind of “sun” and “water” scene, earning myself +183 terrain altering exp points. I stamped the edges using the Dylusions “Bordering on the Edge” set. The flamingo I stamped directly onto pink checkered paper using the Lawn Fawn “Gnome Sweet Gnome” set. I stamped the lemonade glass using the Lawn Fawn “Make Lemonade” set, colouring it with Distress Markers. I decided the glass needed a little "table" to float on, so I stamped the lily pad using the My Little Shoebox “Oasis” set. I finished it off by adding a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn “Happy Summer” set.

This hot ATC will chill out in the following challenges:

It seems all the birds were after was a refreshing drink. I had Olga, one of the house gnomes, prepare some tasty lemonade and we invited some of the birds to partake in the thirst quenching beverage. Sated, they departed as mysteriously as they had appeared.
