Letter K

Bonjour everyone!
My tag this week is K for Knights of Old.  I love images from the medieval period.  I had some fairy tale papers which I used for the background.  I cut the tag in the shape of a medieval arch.  I found the image of the knight on the internet in black and white so I printed him, cut him out and coloured him with promarkers.  He then looked a bit 'new' so I toned down the colours with a wash of picket fence distress stain (wonderful stuff!).  I used the same die as last week to cut the strip for the bottom of the tag.  I added embellishments of gold gems, some ribbon and the letter K.  The tie at the top is some deconstructed cord which I felt echoed the plumes on his helmet and I anchored this with a gold button toned down with lilac alchol ink.  Whew!  Enough explanation!!  Will come back later to browse through all your wonderful creations.  Until then - a bientot!!   Carolyn xx

  4. Oh yes, that medieval knight is great! Love the way you finished the tag off as well, with the "plumey" tie at the top and the great jewelled trim at the bottom.
