TIO #86 - Age of Chivalry
The theme this week over on Dragon's Dream TIO challenge is "Age of Chivalry" and is set for us by Janet.
I have used a stamp set by Tanda stamps for all of my images. The knight is stamped onto metal using black stazon, then cut out, andf 3D mounted onto my tag. I have used DI's in pumice stone, putty and black soot for my background and have stamped my images with the same DI's and black stazon where I wanted more emphasis.
The fleur de lis and crown have been cut using TH dies and a nestie for the larger fleur de lis. I have then run the die cuts through my cuttlebug using a script embossing folder. Sanded the raised script then brushed over very lightly with black soot DI.
Finally, I have made the rossette, using a mould and ultra thick EP, to which I have added bronze and gold EP. I have brushed over the raised areas very lightly with old gold rub and buff, kbut have to admit this isn;t showing very well in the photo. I thought the rossette could signify the war of the roses. Not sure if I have the right era in history though (not my strong point!)
That's it for now. A cup of tea calls. Do pop over to the TIO challenge block and check out the entries by my super talented design team buddies. Then let's see what you can come up with. We love popping over to your blogs.
