Some Extra Bit of Intel

We woke up in Stuffton to the shouting of a newsie. Sleepily I donned my armour and travelling cloak and went to purchase one of the papers the young chap was hawking. As I dropped a bronze coin into his hand, he touched the brim of his cap, subtly tipping it in thanks before he started hollering again. The Guardian of Glitter emerged, rubbing her tired eyes as I scanned the news. Suddenly one article caught my eye and made me stop.
“Gotcha,” I whispered to myself.  

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

I started this card by colouring the QKR Stampede “News Boy” image using Prismacolor pencils and cutting him out. The background was cut from an old newspaper and attacked with Distress Paint, earning me +112 messy XP points. The circular images were stamped with a Unity stamp. The letters were cut with the Birthday Bash cartridge, which I use for its font more than anything else. You may recognize the paper as it was left over from this other news themed card I had recently made. 

On the inside I stamped the top sentiment using the My Creative Time “Wow! So Many Candles” set and the bottom one using the Crafty Secrets “Party Queen” set.

The envelope was stamped with the same circular coffeecup stain like images, matching the front and inside of the card.

This card will spread the news in the following challenges:

“Nikki!” I exclaimed. “I’ve found him! I know where we can find the Duke of Dies and hopefully the Lady Commander of Copics.”
“What? How?” the Guardian of Glitter asked, still not fully awake.
“This newspaper article,” I said, holding the paper out to her, “It has all the information we need to find his lair. Let us go. We have no time to waste,” I declared.
“Can’t we at least have coffee?” Nikki grumbled.
I stopped and slowly turned to her. “You’re right. We can’t quest caffeine free. To the cafe!”
