Today I went shopping in the village, taking advantage of the BOGO sale at Mikael’s Armour Emporium; a girl can never have too many pieces of coordinating armour! As I was waiting for my pieces to be wrapped, I heard some commotion from across the street. Glancing over I spotted a foursome of monster buddies arguing whilst trying to get some letters into the postbox. They were having troubles, being that they were all too short to reach the box properly. Suddenly, a gust of wind snatched up one of the letters and the orange monster squealed in horror as it sailed away.
I started this card by stamping the Stampotique “Line Up” image, colouring it with Prismacolor pencils and then cutting all the monsters out. Setting those aside, I worked on the background. I made the sky and grass using Distress Paint, something I bought awhile ago, and never really use that much.
I then used a stencil and some silver Distress Paint to make the bubbles in the sky, which you can only see in the right light, earning me +555 shadow XP points. I stamped and paper pieced the mailbox and envelopes using the Lawn Fawn “You’ve Got Mail” set. The clouds I stamped onto patterned paper using the My Little Shoebox “Home Tweet Home” set. Last I stamped the sentiment using a Unity stamp.
On the inside I stamped the border using the Lawn Fawn “You’ve Got Mail” set to make it look all envelopey like. The sentiment is from the My Creative Time “Wow! So Many Candles” set.
On the envelope I stamped...an envelope….weeeeeeeird….lol.
This card will be posted in the following challenges:
I simply had to help the adorable monster friends, so I cast a retrieve spell, calling the runaway letter to my outstretched hand. I let Mikael know I would be right back to collect my new armour and walked across the street to the panicked monsters. They sighed in relief when they saw I had retrieved their letter and I helped them insert it into the mailslot.
“Thank you, lady!” the green monster said. “That our renewal for Monster Babe Magazine.”
