The Sassy Informant

Greetings. Thank you for stopping by the Guild Hall today. The Guardian of Glitter and I are off exploring the Floundering Reef looking for signs of where the Duke of Dies has the Lady Commander of Copics locked up. Our investigating finally lead us to a derelict looking building in the slums. We had heard whispers that there was a lass here who knew where the Duke of Dies had his lair. When we opened the door to the run down shack we were surprised to see a dance studio inside with girls in tutus, practicing ballet. Nikki and I stood off to the side watching when one of the girls finally noticed us and stomped over. She was wearing a kawaii pig headed hat and a little curly pig tail could be seen poking from her skirts.
“Who’re you?” she snarled, crossing her arms over her chest.
“I’m sorry to interrupt, miss. I am Guild Master Crys…”
“Ya, ya, ya. Whatcha want?” she demanded, tapping her foot.
“We are looking for,” I consulted my parchment, “'Sugar Ganache'.”
“That’s me. Make it snappy,” the girl said, glaring at me.

I was invited to guest design over at Try it on Tuesday where the theme this week is Tags Anywhere or Just a Tag. I’m not well adept at making tags as I usually make cards, so this was truly a challenging crafty quest, but I did have fun making it and like how it turned out.

I started this tag by stamping the Kraftin’ Kimmie “Angry Ballerina” image and colouring it with Prismacolor pencils. I then worked on the background, stamping the Unity “Worn Music” image and heat embossing it. I sprayed the tag with pink Dylusions spray ink and then used a stencil and some Black Soot Distress Ink, wiping off the music notes with a baby wipe. The borders were cut using the Artbooking cartridge. Last I added the cheeky sentiment from the Dylusions “Say It How It Is” set earning myself +333 sassy XP points and leveling up!

This tag will dance into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: I ought to use this more (Dylusions spray ink. I have a bunch of them and hardly use them anymore.)

After some prodding we were able to ascertain the location of the Duke of Dies lair thanks to Sugar’s information. After she was done with us, she stomped back to the group, her pig ears flapping as she walked, and continued on with her dancing. I had never met someone with a more ironic name - a sassy brat named Sugar - go figure.
