Thank you for stopping by the Guild Hall. Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I decided to do some adventuring in the Iced Raspberry Woods. We had received a quest from a gent at the local tavern, tipping us off that this particular forest was flush with rare raspberry balls...if you could make it through the throng of monsters. Raspberry balls contain juices within their tough shell, which can be used as a powerful healing agent if combined into the correct tonic. Angela and I had been questing for upwards of an hour, battling our way through the forest, when we came upon a small ice nymph. Her blue hair sparkled with ice crystals and to our surprise, she was holding onto one of the coveted raspberry balls!
This card was created for the Creative Card Crew “Anything Goes” challenge that is happening now. Play along with any project for a chance to win a prize from our sponsors, Dies R Us and A Day for Daisies!
I started this card by colouring the A Day For Daisies image “Christmas Pixi Two” using Prismacolor pencils. I die cut and stamped the sentiment using the Lawn Fawn “Quinn’s ABCs set”. The snowflakes were die cut using the Lawn Fawn “Stitched Snowflakes” die set.
The trees on the paper are super sparkly...but I decided I needed to level up the sparkle on this card, and added some more to her scarf and boots.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment using the Lawn Fawn “Joy to the Woods” set. The baubles I stamped using the Lawn Fawn “Ornate Ornaments” set and instead of colouring them, decided to paper piece the balls, earning +40 patterned XP points.
The envelope was stamped using a CTMH set with Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks to make it match the front of the card.
This card will have a ball in the following challenges:
I took a tentative step towards the ice nymph, eyes fixed on the raspberry ball she was clutching in her small hands. She responded by hissing, showing her sharp pointed teeth.
“So, not friendly then,” the Lady Commander of Copics quipped.
“Seems not. But we didn’t come all this way to leave empty handed,” I declared, notching my bow.
We would have those balls, one way or another!
