Baby Snatching Shifter

Greetings. Thank you for stopping by the Guild Hall. Today, the Lady Commander of Copics and I were traipsing through the Victorian Velvet Underground in search of a shifter who was supposedly kidnapping babies. The creature was transforming into a bird to gain entry into people’s homes through open windows, then shifting back into its human form and stealing the children - to what end we do not know. We’ve received several ravens at the Guild Hall though, pleading us to help find the children and stop this rogue shifter. 

This was created for the Creative Card Crew “Baby or Lots of Pink or Lots of Blue” challenge that is happening now. Come play with us and you can win a $15 gift voucher to Scrapping Center! (Who couldn’t use that!)
 
I started this card by stamping the Unity image (I don’t know its name as it was included free with one of my orders with no packaging) and colouring it with Distress Markers. There was too much white space for my liking, so I inked the edges with Spun Sugar Distress Ink then stamped the swirly floral border using the Inkadinkado “Flower Flourishes” set. The sentiment I stamped using the My Craft Spot “New Arrival” set. A couple heart shaped pearls and some twine finished off the front of this card.

On the inside I jazzed up the pink cardstock using the Flower Flourishes set again. The sentiment came from the New Arrival set as well.

The envelope was also stamped with the Flower Flourishes set, earning me +333 triple tech exp points, in addition to making everything match.

This baby card will arrive in the following challenges:

After battling through waves of low level minions, we finally came across the lair of the shifter. The creature itself was nowhere to be seen, but the children were all there, locked in cages. The Lady Commander and I quickly freed them, bringing them to the surface to return to their homes. Although the children were rescued, that bird shifter is still out there. We’d have to do some more research and perhaps a locating spell to properly track the criminal down and stop it for good.

Love how you used the swirl stamp around the bird and on other spots on the card it ties it together very well.

Thank you for joining us at Brown Sugar this week and good luck!
