That Pins and Needles Feeling

Today a raven arrived from the distant village of Stitchenton calling the Crafters Guild to arms. A black mage had shown up in the village and was causing all sorts of dark problems for the smallfolk. The Lady Commander of Copics and I prepared the weapons whilst the Guardian of Glitter packed a generous supply of elixirs and mana potions; I had a feeling we would be using an abundance of spells. As we rode up to the village entrance, night had already fallen and the black mage was waiting for us.
“Do you think your pathetic spells can defeat my dark magiks?” the mage spat, blue sparkes crackling at his fingertips. He tossed a green poppet at us, mumbling an incantation. I was confused as to why he was hurling dolls at us until it suddenly began to grow. The small poppet, pins sticking out of it, didn’t stop growing until it was as tall as the giants of Fenrall Hills! 

This was created for the Just Some Lines October Challenge. Come play along with us and make a Halloween craft using any Just Some Lines image and you can win yourself a digi!

I started this card by colouring the Just Some Lines Voodoo Doll image using my trusty Prismacolor pencils. I then used the Inkadinkado “Voodoo Doll” set that I picked up in a recent guild raid and stamped the little pins in the background. I also used that set for the sentiment. I used my Cuttlebug and a Tim Holtz folder to emboss the green panel for +88 bumpy exp points. I was actually amazed that bow worked out so nicely. I just held some orange ribbon and black ribbon together, tied and hoped for the best. Well my spell of knots must have worked, because I was pretty impressed with the end result.

I decorated the inside using the “Voodoo Doll” set again. The sentiment is from some cheap-o stamp I got out of the dollar bin at Michaels quite a few years ago.

I did up the envelope with the “Voodoo Doll” set, earning +55 black magic exp points.

This evil poppet will perform his magic in the following challenges:

It was a harsh battle. The doll kept using a voodoo spell that would sap HP from us and transfer it to him. With some fancy die rolls and lots of elixirs, we were able to finally defeat the stitched fiend. When it shrunk back down to regular doll size though, the black mage was no longer there! Now the hunt was on…
