Last night, the Guardian of Glitter and I set about exploring a museum that was said to house several occult exhibits. There were strange rumblings from the town’s folk of portals being opened from within the museum leading to otherworldly dimensions. Normally we don’t pay mind to gossip of the smallfolk, but we had received a raven from the Tower of Magi informing us that an ancient demon was said to be awakening and would appear through one of these portals in the museum.
We crept through the dusty halls, holding our lightstones high to stave off the inky darkness, when we suddenly heard a crash from behind us. The Guardian of Glitter and I rushed in the direction of the sound and were quite surprised to see a colourful turtle with a bird upon its back. Why, it was the same bird that had hatched at the Guild Hall not too long ago!
This card was created for the reminder about the Just Some Lines April challenge which is happening now. Our theme this month is “Think Spring”. Come play along using a JSL image for your chance to win!
I started by colouring the Just Some Lines “Turt ‘n Peep - Peep” image using Distress Markers and my Hydra Brush of watery wonders. Next I stamped the Unity “Stick With Me” itty bitty, coloured it with Distress Markers and cut it out to place over Turt and Peep. I cut out some flowers using the Art Philosophy cartridge and attached them with a brad. The sentiment on the bottom was stamped using the CAS-Ual Friday “Exclamations” set, earning me +55 bold XP points.
On the inside I stamped the top sentiment using the My Pink Stamper “Birthday Crazy” set and the bottom sentiment using the Crafty Secrets “Party Queen” set. I then used a Unity flower and inking it using Distress Markers, stamped it on the bottom.
I stamped the same flower on the envelope to make it all matchy-match.
These springtime friends will wander into the following challenges:
“Peep!” the bird cried. I lowered my lightstone in relief, but before I could laugh or wonder how the chick had even got to the museum, the turtle and the chick merged into one, growing to a height of fifteen feet! It was the Ancient One the Magi had warned us of! I drew my blade as Nikki cast a spell of protection around us. The battle to save this dimension had begun!
