A Wet Quest

The time has finally arrived. Tomorrow the Guardian of Glitter and I depart on our quest to Icy Land. I sent a raven ahead to some of my contacts there so we would have some semblance of a plan before we arrived to hasten the success our quest. When I received the return reply, I was surprised to see that one of the areas we had to explore was the underwater caverns of Silfra. The merpeople that dwell in the oceans surrounding Icy Land would be expecting us and ready to guide us during our dive. 

This card was made for the Creative Card Crew “Lucky Charms” challenge that is happening now. Make a project with a charm and come play along with us for your chance to win a prize from our sponsors!

I started this card by colouring the Delicious Doodles “Marina” image using Prismacolor pencils, adding some hi-lites with a white gel pen. I dove deep into my stash and used three patterned papers that I’ve had for a few years and have yet to cut. The sentiment is an unknown Unity stamp I got in a grab bag. I added a sprinkling of blue gems for some extra sparkle. Then came the challenge...So I didn’t have a charm to use, as I don’t use charms at all in my crafting adventures. I had to improvise, so I found a pair of ancient dolphin earrings I’ve had since I was a little kid and took one apart to use. I worked like a charm - LOL. I just earned myself +88 punny XP points there.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment using three different Unity stamps and a Close To My Heart stamp. I have no idea why that background paper looks mega purple in the picture as it’s actually quite blue. Weird.

(See blue...weird...anyways...). I have literally no underwater related stamps, so instead I used some stars from the Lawn Fawn “Critters Ever After” set to decorate the envelope.  

This card will swim on into the following challenges:
Top Tip Tuesday: 3, 5 or 7 (3 different patterned papers)

I guess we will need more than our winter furs and armours on this trip. It appears some diving equipment will be necessary. I decided to load up on some fire and lightning based spells as well to aid us in defeating any underwater cretins we may happen upon. Let the adventure begin…
