Salutations. Today the Guardian of Glitter and I spent a relaxing afternoon at Natsume Farm picking peaches. These were no ordinary peaches though. Natsume Farm grows magically enhanced elixir peaches that infuse you with healing tonics, filling up not only your HP but also your MP. They are more practical when adventuring, as glass vials filled with your traditional elixir potions tend to break rather easily when jostled.
I started this bookmark by cutting the peach using the Just Because Cards cartridge and inking the pieces a little before gluing everything together. Instead of using patterned paper for the background I hunted through my VAST embossing folder stash and chose some big dots to emboss it with. I have a serious problem when it comes to buying embossing folders...I have over 70 of them! The other fruit I stamped using the Stampin’ Up “Tart and Tangy” set. Instead of using ink pads though, I coloured the stamps using Distress Markers so I could get different colours on the same image. So coloured ‘em up, gave ‘em the ‘ol huff-huff and stamped them. It worked better than I thought it would! This earned me +129 moisture exp points, which I’m not entirely sure what I will do with.
This fuzzy peach will hold a place in the following challenges:
Shopping Our Stash Challenge #111: I don’t really need another one (embossing folders!!)
Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger: (the minty/peachy colours inspired my bookmark)
The Lady Commander of Copics refused to join Nikki and I on our fruit picking trip, as she will have nothing to do with “juice” or “fruit products”. She will be sorry however, that she missed seeing the adorable large eyed cows, pigs and sheep at Natsume Farm.
