Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I spent the day scouting the outer borders of Hollyston, as we had received a raven from the inhabitants informing us that Cragle demons had been spotted. Hollyston is a peaceful place, their economy based solely on planting and harvesting holly for the great Winter Festival. Should the Cragles attack the village and ruin the crop, it would be devastating to Hollyston’s income, sending the people into poverty. It wasn’t long before we caught the trail of the Cragles and tracked them to their lair.
I started this itty-bitty card by cutting the white shape at 2 ¾” using the Storybook cartridge. I then inked up The Greeting Farm’s Holiday Anya using Archival ink and stamped her onto the shape.
She was then coloured using my Prismacolor pencils and given a little sparkle with some ice Stickles and a tiny gem. I stamped the sentiment on the side using the Bug Bites “Mistletoe” set.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment using the My Pink Stamper “Christmas Wishes” set. The holly came from the Tim Holtz “Christmas Memories” set which I “inked” using Distress Markers so I could get two different colours, earning me a cool +271 two tone exp points.
I used this same stamp and technique on the mini envelope I made for the wee little card. Not really sure what to do with this now as it’s too small to mail and too cute to waste on adding to someone’s gift who won’t appreciate it...hmmm...I have a feeling this will remain in my card box awhile before the perfect situation comes along to use it.
This mini ‘lil note card will sparkle in the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Stamping All-Stars (Archival black ink - couldn’t craft without it!)
Upon defeating the Cragle demons that had taken up residence near the village, we returned to Hollyston to assure them they (and their holly crop) were safe. Hollinda, the village leader was immensely grateful and bestowed upon us a batch of poisoned holly arrowheads their R&D team had just created. Ummm...aweeeeeeeesome…
