Today there was a mysterious visitor in the village. We received a raven carrying a message from one of the innkeepers who was concerned this new arrival was practicing black magic. The Lady Commander and I suited up and headed to the village to investigate. Upon arriving we saw a small midnight blue tent covered in glittering stars that was not there before. Throwing caution to the wind, I entered the tent, keeping my hand on the hilt of my sword. Seated at a small table was a creature, its face covered with a veil. “Come in, Guild Massssssster,” the creature hissed. “I’ve been waiting for you.”
As I had no idea what tarot symbols were, I had to do some research before starting this crafty quest. I chose to make the King of Cups, as I had this wonderful frog head already watercoloured with Distress Markers and sitting in my “bits box”, just waiting for a project. He was stamped using the Dylusions “Pondering Petunia” set. I stamped the hand from the Dylusions “Traveling Travis” set and coloured it green to match the frog. The frog’s...umm...”body” I created using a shape from the Dylusions “Doodle Parts” set and was also watercoloured with Distress Markers. This surprisingly earned me +204 necromancy exp points.
I made the background with a spritz of Dylusions spray ink and then stamped the cup from the Lawn Fawn “My Cup of Tea” set. I liked the background, but knew most of it was going to be covered up, so I had to take a picture of it separately :)
This ATC will be reading fortunes in the following challenges:
The creature, whose face was still obscured, began dealing cards, flipping them over one at a time. “Thisssssss doesn’t bode well for you, Guild Massssster,” it hissed, looking up at me. “King of Cupsssssss......cups sssssspilling over with blood!!”
I drew my sword, just as the creature flung off its veil, revealing an amphibious head underneath. The Lady Commander of Copics, let loose a paralyzing spells, stopping the creature dead in its tracks.
“What say you, sister? Shall we dispense of this charlatan?” I asked the Lady Commander, glancing over my shoulder.
“I wonder what colour its blood will be,” she replied.
I took that as affirmation and swung my great sword, removing the frog’s head in one strike.
Blue...its blood was blue. Gross.
