Teeny Bopper Tendencies

Today I was trying to find the Lady Commander of Copics, wanting her opinion on which dagger I should bring on our campaign tonight, but couldn’t locate her anywhere. I finally found her in her sleeping chambers in the midst of hanging up a poster.
“Don’t you knock?!” she squealed when she saw me standing in her doorway. As she attempted to shield the poster with her body, a smirk slowly spread across my face.
“What are you doing, dear sister,” I chided. “Is that who I think it is?”
Dejected, she stepped away from the poster. “Nicholas - lead singer of the Magical Dreamers.”
Try as I might, I couldn’t suppress the snicker that burst forth.
“I just picked up their new song stone,” she said picking up a blue stone and gently turning the top. Music began to fill the room.

I started this little ATC by cutting out the base and using some of my precious music note paper *gaaaaaaaaaaaaaasp* I know, I know. You may be familiar with how I hoard music note paper and don’t like cutting it up, but never fear, this was a just a scrap that was leftover from making this card! No new paper was harmed in the creation of this ATC! *PHEW* Everyone can relax.

For the image I decided to use “Tyler” from The Greeting Farm’s Creeper Crew Collection. It seemed appropriate since they are sponsoring the challenge at Wicked Wednesday AND he has a guitar :) Instead of colouring him, I wanted to keep the ATC monochromatic and stamped the “Worn Music” Unity stamp right over his cute creeper face *BLAM!* I really liked how it looked and decided to take it a step further and distress the edges, earning me +593 shready distressy exp points. I originally wanted to add a sentiment from the Creeper Crew Collection, but Tyler took up almost the entire space! I already had to chop off his feet! I instead opted for some blue buttons that matched the colour scheme nicely.

This ATC will play its way into the following challenges:

“I’ll leave you to it then,” I called over my shoulder, leaving her sleeping chambers.  Once in the hallway there was no stopping the laughter; I’m fairly certain she heard me. What are sisters for if not to mock the other’s guilty pleasures?
