Today was a lazy day spent cleaning the rookery and preparing all the ravens and owls for their massive flight next week, delivering all the Festival of Love letters and cards. Besides the Winter Festival this is their most intense flight and delivery of the year. As I was finishing up, I espied something odd. Peeking out from under a massive mound of straw was the corner of an envelope. I carefully tugged the letter free and gasped when I read the name on the soiled envelope.
I started this card by masking off the middle strip and then spritzing the rest using some blue Dylusions spray ink. I then used the Lawn Fawn “You’ve Got Mail” set to stamp the post marks down the right side. I stamped the borders of the white strip that was masked with those blue and red dashes that signify mail - lol...I’m not sure what they’re called or what they’re for, but they mean “mail” to me. I stamped the mailbox and letters using the same Lawn Fawn set and coloured them with Prismacolor pencils.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment using the Lawn Fawn “My Silly Valentine” set and added some little envelopes and hearts.
The envelope was spritzed with some more Dylusions spray ink, making it match the front of the card and earning me +300 spritzy XP points. I added another little envelope flying on some hearts.
This card will be sent into the following challenges:
The letter was addressed to Black Soot-Ture, the evil wizard who has been trying to fell the Festival of Love. Why would there be a letter meant for that foul miscreant in the rookery? Was there a spy in the Guild Hall? A traitor passing information to the nefarious malefactor? It would certainly explain why all our attempts to thwart his plans have failed. Carefully, I transported the letter to the crafting chambers where I could begin testing it to determine its creator and expose the traitor among us.
