Skip to the Beat, Run From the Fray

Today the Guardian of Glitter and I set off on a quest to locate some topaz gems. The gems are getting harder and harder to find in the land, and we use them at the Guild Hall when mixing our battle inks and water spell powders. We travelled far in search of the sparkling stones, finding ourselves deep in fae territory. Normally this would be cause for concern as the fae tend to get very aggressive when entering their court. Today however they were in the midst of the Festival of Seasons. All the creatures were singing, dancing and indulging in food and drink. Nikki and I cast a stealth spell and snuck through the party, hoping no one would take notice.

I started this ATC by stamping the Make it Crafty “Fifi” image using my trusty ‘ol Archival Jet Black. I then water coloured the image using Distress Markers and my fabled Hydra Brush of +111 wetness. For the base of the ATC I printed a music note pattern off my computer and simply cut it to size. The sentiment I stamped using the Dylusions “Say What You Mean” set. I used some scraps from my bin to make the frame around the ATC. HA! I just noticed that there is a piece of dog hair on the ATC in the pic - lol. Ah is known that a craft with direwolf hair adds +104 exp points to ye who receives said craft.

This little fae will dance her way into the following challenges:
The Corrosive Challenge #175: I’ve Been Framed

As we were nearing the edge of the fairy border, our stealth spell wore off, leaving the Guardian of Glitter and I woefully exposed. One of the fae spotted us and cried out, alerting the guard. Nikki and I tore off through the field, casting a spell of swiftness as we ran, hoping to make it to the Cobalt Caves where the fae could not pursue us.

Love it - and you made me think of that little saying "no outfit is complete without dog hair" so we just substitute "craft project" for "outfit". :) hee hee
Thanks for joining us at Wicked Wednesday! xo

This is such a sweet ATC. Love the watercoloured image and that fun music background. Both are awesome with the sentiment. the dog hair made me laugh because everything I make has cat hair somewhere on it. Does that count for extra points, too? Thanks for joining our Frame It challenge at ATCs With Attitude. Hope to see you again soon.
