My (Medieval) Prince

Hi All,

Well, I've been looking at my adorable Whiff of Joy stamps, and decided this week, I would get to colouring. I buy mine online at 7 Kids College Fund, and this is their Medieval collection. I used Knight Charlie, and Charlotte's Horse.

I wanted to do a square card, because the horse image is quite large, and I wanted a bit more space.

My card base is Bravo Burgundy, with a layer of white, and a layer of Basic Gray DSP from a retired Hostess pack from SU.

Next, there is a 4" square piece of Bravo Burgundy run through my Big Shot with my Diamonds CB folder, and I swiped White Craft ink over the raised parts, and around the edges to make it stand out a bit more.

At the bottom, I stamped "My Prince" in Versamark, and embossed in white EP. I created a line of Pewter brads using my Mat Pack and SU's Vintage Brads. I like that Pewter colour - really adds to the Medieval feel.

The horse was stamped on a PTI white panel in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and coloured with Copic markers. I tried to use colours that weren't too flashy.

Next, I stamped the knight on PTI white CS and coloured with Copics, and cut out. I stuck him on beside the horse with snail adhesive on one side, and a couple Dimensionals on the other side for depth.
I really had fun doing this one - I love these images!
Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
