Blog Hop - My Knight in Shining Armor

Welcome to another MFT Release Blog Hop. Kim of MFT is starting out the blog hop so if you didn't come from her blog, head on over there, you don't want to miss out on starting from the beginning.

I decided to use the set "Good Knight". I used all but four of the sayings in the set on just this card! I did cut apart one of the sayings so that I could use just the word "My" with "Hero".

Castle and Knight are embossed in sliver embossing powder. Shield, draw bridge and flags are all paper pieced, held down with Helmar Acid Free glue. I layered the castle a few tims so it uses Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots for dimension. The knight also uses Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots. The dragon was watercolored with distress reinkers. All the squares were distressed with distress inks. All the squares and background use Helmar's Quick Fix Runner adhesive. Layout is sketch challenge 182.

stamps: Good Knight - MFT; paper: black, saraha sand, dsp, silver; ink: black, versamark; accs: helmar liquid scrap dots, helmar acid free glue, helmar quick fix runner, silver embossing powder

Now head on over to Amy's blog to see her fabulous creation. Enjoy the hop!
