Shroom Full of Spiders

Today the Crafters Guild armed ourselves well and prepared to head to the guild raid, an annual event where we destroy and plunder, earning much crafty loot and exp in the process. The four of us dismounted our horses upon approaching the raid site and stopped short. Barring the entrance was a child atop a mushroom tuffet.
“Where ‘ya think you're going?” she asked in a cheery sing-song voice which was at odds with her hostile inquiry.
The four of us looked at each other, unsure as to how to proceed. “Errr...greetings, child…” I started before she interrupted me.
“The name’s Muffet.” Suddenly her smiling face changed, morphing into something hideous, burning red eyes glowing under the brim of her green sunhat. “That’s Miss Muffet to you!” she roared, spittle coming from her mouth.  

This card was created for the reminder about the Just Some Lines September Challenge that is happening now! The theme this month is Autumn/Fall or Back to School. Come play along with a JSL image for a chance to win a digi! Woot!

I started by colouring the Just Some Lines “Lissie’s Sun Hat” image using my trusty Prismacolors. Setting her in a safe place, I got to work on the background. 
This started out as a white piece of paper. I swiped some Distress Inks on my craft mat, sprayed them with water and wiped my paper through. I then stamped the leaves using the Dylusions “Doodle Parts” set. I was fairly pleased with the end result. The sentiment is from a Kraftin’ Kimmie stamp called “Willow” that I’ve yet to use after purchasing it over a year ago. The small mushroom was stamped from the Lawn Fawn “Critters of the Forest” set. The large mushrooms were cut using the Freshly Picked cartridge.

On the inside I inked the edges and stamped the bottom portion using the Unity “You Make Me Mushy” itty bitty. The top part was stamped with the sentiment from the Unity “Nicest Place to Be” itty bitty.

Things sorta got out of hand on the envelope, stamping it all up using the Dylusions “Doodle Parts” set and earning me +3823 overindulgence exp points.

This shroomy card will mush it up in the following challenges:
Use It Tuesday Challenge #63: Friendship (used an uninked sentiment stamp I’ve had over a year and that “cord” that is nearly three years old!)

The four of us drew our weapons as a spider army hoard emerged from behind the toadstool the demon was seated upon. The Guardian of Glitter and Guild Apprentice Lindsay were paralyzed with a fear spell Muffet cast upon them. It would be up to me and the Lady Commander of Copics.
“Aim for their eyes,” I shouted to my sister over the chaos, loosing an arrow from my great bow, Fungi.
I wasn’t about to let this demon and her spider army stop us from joining the annual crafty raid. Casting a quick barrier spell on the Guardian of Glitter and Guild Apprentice Lindsay so they weren’t hurt, I notched another arrow and unleash a flurry of attacks on our foes. With my arrows equipped with the new poison tipped heads I had just received, it didn’t take long for us to prevail. Now we were set to enjoy the raid!
