Long Overdue to Find That Blade!

After leaving the random (but delicious) sushi restaurant in the middle of the Frostling Forest, our bellies now full of fish and rice, the Lady Commander of Copics and I continued our search for the trolls’ hideout where we would hopefully find the legendary Sapphire Glass Blade. After walking for about thirty minutes, we spotted a lass, tearing through the forest as though a death demon was hot on her heels. Looking behind her as she ran, the hooded girl failed to see us and crashed right into my sister, sending the basket she was holding flying out of her hands.
“What is the trouble, girl?” I inquired, my hand moving the the hilt of my blade.
“W-w-w-wolf,” she sputtered, breathing hard. 

I started this card by doing something I’ve never done before and stamping the Kraftin’ Kimmie “Little Red Riding Hood” image onto paper that was torn *gaaaaaaaaaasp* out of a book. I know, I know...but do not fret. I purchased the book for only one dollar at a book fair with the intention of using its pages for crafty endeavours. I coloured her up using Prismacolor pencils, not blending with Gamsol for fear of smearing the words. I do like how she turned out in the end. I then stamped the library card using the Lawn Fawn “Check This Out” set and stamped the words on it with the “Smitty’s ABCs” set. I also stamped the sentiment and the date stamp image using the “Check This Out” set. Riding Hood looked a little lonely, so I stamped the fox using the Lawn Fawn “Critters in the Forest” set and coloured him with Prismacolor pencils as well.

On the inside I stamped the first sentiment using the Lawn Fawn “Science of Love” set and the second one using the My Pink Stamper “Birthday Crazy” set. I stamped and die cut the cute bird from the “Science of Love” set and then stamped some books for her to stand on using the Unity “Love is in the Pages” itty bitty.

I also stamped those same books on the envelope to tie everything together and earn me +499 wisdom XP points.

This card will be entered before it’s overdue for the following challenges:
Lawnscaping Challenge #79: Try a New Technique (stamping and colouring on a book page)

I was fairly confident the Lady Commander and I could handle a measly wolf and decided to see if the girl had come across the trolls we sought while she was fleeing through the woods.
“I do remember seeing some strange creatures about one league back that way,” she replied gesturing behind her. It was the best lead we had, so bidding the girl farewell we continued in the direction she had indicated, eager to obtain the Sapphire Glass Blade.
