Training Can Leave You in Stitches

Greetings. Thank you for stopping by the Guild Hall today. Us guildys have been quite busy catching and training new familiars to fight alongside us in battle. In fact, our training regime with them has become so intense that I had Holton, the carpenter from the village, come to the Guild Hall and construct a little training gym for the creatures so we could level them up more efficiently. He did such nice work, I decided to take a break from training and retreated to the crafting chambers to make him a thank you card. 

This card was part of a collection of thank you cards I made. I started by inking three different sheets of white cardstock in pink, blue and yellow tones. For each one, I swiped two different colours of Distress Ink on my splat mat, spritzed them with water and wiped the cardstock through a couple times. After that I cut them into little 1” squares so I had a pile of pinkish ones, bluey ones and yellowish ones, earning me +725 rainbowy exp points.
These were the left over squares after making ten cards.
For this particular card I stamped a flower image using Inkadinkado “Special Thought For You” set. I then used my Cuttlebug and a cute stitched border folder to emboss the front. The sentiment came from the My Pink Stamper “Family and Friends” set.

This card will stitch its way into the following challenges:
Jo’s Scrap Shack FFC#21: Favorite Technique (using Distress Ink spritzed with water to colour paper that’s swiped through)

With our new training room, we are able to level up our novice familiars much quicker than before, rapidly teaching them new skills and spells. Soon we will have quite a number of the little guys to choose from while questing. This should increase our spoil collection rate and help us gain levels more quickly.
