A Flower Field of Dreams

Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I travelled south where there was no snow to do some questing in the Forbidden Fields. Standing amidst a sea of pink grass, I thought I spotted two girls frolicking through the tall rainbow coloured flowers that were swaying in a gentle breeze. Wary of their mechanical looking movements, I placed my hand on the hilt of my sword as the Lady Commander and I approached the strangers.  

This week the theme at Wicked Wednesday is “Girly Stuff”. Make an ATC using this theme for a chance to win a prize from our sponsor, Vera Lane Studio.

I got a little carried away with these fantastic images and created three ATCs. So let’s get to it.

The first one was made using the flower image from the “Friendship Mother Daughter” set. I coloured them with Prismacolor pencils adding some white accents with a gel pen, which boosted my white magic XP. Anyone need a healing spell?
This ATC will be entered at Penny’s Challenge #210: Anything Goes.

For the second ATC I used the mother image, also from the “Friendship Mother Daughter” set. She was coloured with Prismacolor pencils which I left unblended for a more sketchy look. The background was made using the Dylusions “Triangles” stencil and Distress Inks. I stamped the sentiment and the flowers in the corner using a couple Unity stamps for a dual strike, dealing massive HP damage.

The final ATC was made using the daughter image from the “Friendship Mother Daughter” set. She was coloured using Prismacolor pencils that were blended with Gamsol. I also used the flower heads of the same image from the first ATC. The sentiment was stamped using the My Pink Stamper “Family & Friends” set.

It was clear that the two girls were not right in the head. We soon discovered that they had eaten some of the rainbow flowers’ petals and were completely high. Worried for their safety, as the Forbidden Fields are not named such for no reason, we lead the girls to the nearby village where they could safely rest until the effects of the flowers wore off. The Lady Commander and I then started the journey back to the Guild Hall, our bags-of-holding stuffed full of loot from our day of questing.
