Heart Stick For You

Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I embarked on a quest through Heart Stick Field. In these vast fields grow the rare heartropic plant, a vital ingredient used in brewing love potions. As we roamed the field, felling any enemies who tried to engage us in battle, we collected all of the heartropics plants we came across. We were about the leave Heart Stick Field when we spotted a creature in distress. In the distance, we could see a furry blue monster surrounded by venomous giant spiders. The poor thing was quivering in fear before the demons.
“Come sister,” I said, notching an arrow in my great bow, Fungi, as I raced towards the battle. 

I started this card by making the background using various shades of pink Distress Ink and then adding some spritzes of Pink Bubblegum Dylusions spray ink. I stamped the hearts on top using the Unity January 2013 KOTM (the sentiment also came from that kit). I also stamped the love definition in the background using the Unity “Give it All Meaning” stamp. Next I stamped the Stampotique “Hug Monster” and coloured him using Prismacolor pencils. The hearts-on-sticks I cut from the Cricut Artbooking cartridge.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment using the Lawn Fawn “My Silly Valentine” set. On the side I inked a Unity stamp with Distress ink and before stamping it, spritzed it with water to give it the blurry imperfect look.

The envelope was stamped with the same “heart strings” that are on the front “tying” everything together...get it….strings….tying….Hey - I just earned +60 punny XP!

This card will be giving out hugs in the following challenges:
Penny’s Challenge #163: Something Old and Something New (old - music note paper new - Stampotique monster)

The Lady Commander and I quickly dispensed of the vile spider demons, freeing the blue monster.
Thanks lady warriors,” the monster said as his tail swished behind him, aflame with red light. Suddenly he lunged at us, entrapping us both in a giant hug.
Squishy lady warriors,” he giggled and just as abruptly released us from his grasp.
K bye,” the monster trotted off through the fields waving as he left.
“Well that was peculiar,” I said affixing my bow to my back.
“And CUUUUUUUTE,” the Lady Commander squealed, her eyes shining. “Let’s follow him!”
Before I could stop her, she was already dashing off in the direction of the blue monster. Silently shaking my head I jogged to catch up.
