Wyrd Elephant

Hi there,

Here is my second creation for the week of Chaos over at Catch the Bug, which was a sketch:

And here is my card:
I covered a plain white base card with a pearlescent holly paper from Papermania. I then used glitter strips to add the definition to the base. The doily-like die-cut came with an ATC and I stamped the elephant image (which is a Crafter's Companion image) and holly onto plain white card using Papermania metallic markers, which actually worked quite well. I then coloured them using promarkers - metallic red gold, cool grey 2&3, Plum Preserve, Antique Pink, Mint Green and Poppy. Finally the sentiment was stamped using the purple matallic Papermania pen and purple glitter, and a deep purple bow added to finish.

Audio Book Review

Wyrd Sisters by Terry Prachett
This is a story about Witches and Kings. If you know these books then this story is based around the three witches – Magrat, Nanny Og and Granny Weatherwax (not sure if these are spelt correctly lol). When the King of Lancrah is murdered, the witches help to spirit his baby son away from the castle and keep him safe. They will not meddle in the affairs of kings however, until the kingdom lets it be known that it is not happy with the current ruler and wants the crown to change hands. Then the witches must use some inventive magic to bring the rightful heir to the thrown back, to claim his crown.

I cannot read the Discworld novels but find them to be very entertaining in audio book form. It is the style of writing that stops me from becoming engrossed in the story, but this is bypassed when somebody else is reading. This was a very amusing book that turns many ideas about witchcraft and kings on their heads.

Thank you for looking,
Hugz Tinz
