Skip to the Loo

After gathering our supplies and casting some protection spells, the Guardian of Glitter and I set out to the Floundering Reef. We bought passage upon a trading vessel and headed to the harbour to catch our ride. Before we left I asked the Guardian of Glitter numerous times if she had to use the restroom and she assured me each time she already had and was fine. Of course as soon as we got to the harbour and were waiting to board the ship, she suddenly had to pee. 

I started this card by cutting the shape using the Art Philosophy cartridge and stamping the toilet from the Unity “AH Crap” set. I coloured the plunger and toilet using Distress markers and then paper pieced the tank top and lid using the same paper I used for the background. The “father” was stamped with the Crafty Secrets “Favorite Fellas” set and the bottom sentiment came from the “AH Crap” set. I used some thread in the background for visual interest and +130 binding XP points.

On the inside I stamped the image using the Unity "Crappy Day" itty bitty and the sentiments using a couple other Unity stamps. 

The envelope was stamped with the Unity “Heavy Chevy” stamp, tying in the triangular like thingies in the background paper.

This card will swirl into the following challenges:

Being that there was no proper water closet at the harbour, the Guardian of Glitter was forced to relieve herself in some nearby bushes while I stood guard.
“Sorry,” she apologized sheepishly as she came from the bushes, tightening her leather armour.
I shook my head and we made our way to the ship, which was almost done loading their wares, and set to head out to the Floundering Reef. Our search for the Lady Commander of Copics was now officially underway.
