Greetings and welcome to the Guild Hall. Today was a rather chilly day in the realm, the winds outside blowing ice cold rain against the shutters. As such, the Lady Commander of Copics, who is perpetually cold, decided to light a nice cozy fire. As the flame began to melt the chill off my bones, I went to retrieve the novel I was reading, hoping to curl up next to the roaring fire. When I returned to the parlor I was surprised to find the Lady Commander already snuggled up in front of the fireplace with one of her monster friends curled up beside her. “Hi, Lady,” it said, peeking out from under the furs. Annoyed my reading place was occupied, I instead retreated to the crafting chamber.
I started this bookmark by stamping the “Whisker Monster With Sign” Stampotique image using my trusty Archival Jet Black ink and colouring him with Prismacolors. The sentiment on his sign I stamped using the Lawn Fawn “Cozy Christmas” set. I love being snuggly and cozy when I read, so I thought it the perfect sentiment for a bookmark :) I also used the super cute fire from that set and paper pieced him in my makeshift fireplace, earning me +194 cut-and-paste exp points. The background I made using a stencil and some Distress Ink. After laminating it, I punched a hole and tied some twine and a button to the top.
This bookmark will cozy up to the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp and Show: Favourite Ink (Archival Jet Black - use it for everything! Don’t think I could work without it!)
Although I didn’t get to read curled up in front of the fire, I am pleased that my sister heeded my request about not letting all the monster pals run amok in the Guild Hall and only invited one over. That is until I returned to the parlor to see the whole lot of them had come over and were deep into a game of Mario Party. *siiiiiiigh* Good thing we are well stocked on crisps.
