Knight in Shining Armour!!



I made these cards with my new Fairy Tale set by Doodle Factory - there are about 20 stamps in the set and they are CUTE! There is a wizard, a princess, a horse, dragons, a cart, a castle, a turret, frog, etc. Check them out at Starving Artistamps

So, here are the DEETS!! I MADE MY OWN TECHNIQUE (well, at least I think I did!! I'm sure it's somewhere but I came up with it on my own!) I call it...Faux Armour!! LOL I have seen faux denim & faux wood, but I needed something shiny and silver to go with my little knight. So, I rubbed Going Grey ink on my cardstock, then sponged on silver metallic reinker all over to give it shimmer (boy did it stink though! UGH) Done!

The first card I paper pieced his suit with another piece of "faux armoured" cardstock, but the second card I coloured him using gamsol & prismas. I added Crystal Effects to the shield in the first card, and all over his armour and shield in the second one. The sentiment is from Father Figure (Verve Visual) I added some brads and some photo corners and mounted it all on black to make it pop!!! What do you think???? He's cute eh?? You REALLY gotta check out the whole set - so cute!!!
