Pretty Poison

Salutations. Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I decided to head to the village and see if we could find a gift for our lady mother as Mother’s Day was quickly approaching. On one of the corners, at the edge of a questionable alleyway, stood a small chap in a dapper looking outfit selling flowers. The flowers were sad looking, being that it was only the first week of May, but I felt compelled to purchase one nonetheless. As we turned away from the boy and started towards another stall, the Lady Commander suddenly slapped the flower from my hand.
“What was that for!?” I exclaimed.
“Poison,” she stated, turning to look for the boy who was already dashing down the alleyway, holding onto his little hat as he ran.

I started this card by stamping The Greeting Farm’s “Hello Ian” image onto watercolour paper. I then watercoloured him using Distress Markers. In the background I stamped a plaid type image using a Unity Stamp, spraying the ink with water first to make it….um...blobby? I cut the letters out using the Birthday Bash cartridge and then added some twine and buttons for +88 embellishment XP points.

The inside I stamped using the Inkadinkado “Thoughts for the Day” set. I then coloured the flowers with Distress Inks and my Hydrabrush of +90 wetness.

I stamped a flower on the envelope using the My Little Shoebox “Farmer’s Market” set and coloured it with Distress Markers.

This card has picked the following challenges to enter:

I carefully retrieved the flower from the ground, wrapping it in a handkerchief, to take back to the Guild Hall to study the poisonous properties. I’m thankful my sister was able to detect the poisoned flower before any harm befell me. I wondered now how many other of these flowers the mysterious boy had sold, and to what end.
