Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I travelled to Stuffington to assist the bears there that had been stranded by the recent flooding. Most had got out safely, however there were still a few trapped within the village. I cast a water resistant spell on us before we loaded ourselves into a canoe to search for lost bears. It wasn’t long before we spotted one. The poor fellow was in the middle of the water, clinging to some debris, trying to stay afloat. The Lady Commander and I paddled over to him, helping the sopping bear into the canoe.
This card was created for the Just Some Lines anything goes challenge that is happening now. It’s our last one until September, so make something using any JSL image and win yourself some digis!
I started by colouring this cute bear using Prismacolors and cutting him out. I needed something for him to peek over and chose the “Simple Hello My Friend” Unity set. I had a tiny 3x3 square left of the paper from this project and used it to mount the bear and sentiment. I then decided there was too much empty space at the bottom and stamped that circle pattern using an unknown Unity stamp (it was added in free with my last order and was just in a clear baggie, so I don’t know the name of it). I kind of regret using that yellow crinkle ribbon, but I had these feelings after it was adhered and the bow was hot glued on...sooooo...not much could be done at that point.
It’s probably hard to tell from the first picture, but his paws are kind of curled up. This earned me +218 dimensional exp points.
On the inside I pulled a signature Crystal move and used up a strip of the patterned paper from the front. The sentiment was stamped using the Unity “I Miss Your Face” set (you will also notice the mysterious circle pattern stamp used again).
Alright...my new name for this set is “crop circles” because it is both interesting to look at and a mystery - lol. Until I find the actual name I will refer to this stamp as such. *Ahem*...so I stamped Unity’s “Crop Circles” onto the front of the envelope to tie it all in with the rest of the card.
This bear will take a quick peek into the following challenges:
Desert Islands Crafters Challenge #56 (used #3: patterned paper, #5: ribbon/cording, #9: teal & #10: Sentiment)
The bear sputtered his thanks, letting us know where some other bears were still stranded. We spent the rest of the day rescuing those we could find. It would be a long while before Stuffington was habitable again. Perhaps the Crafters Guild could find a way to raise some gold coins to assist the cute colony.
