You're My Knight


Hi Everyone~!
So not too long ago I discovered the wonderful world of Dustin Pike from one of my blogging buddies, Jane.
She does such a wonderful job coloring these cuties that I had to go by Dustin's blog and check them out. I spent I don't know how long looking through his old posts and downloading his freebies. This is one of them.
Most of my friends know how much I love suits of armour and knights so this one was a must. :-)

So I'm using my usual. 
Papers are DCWV and colors are prismacolors. The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons.
Close up of the handsome knight below:


And for those of you who would like to snag the sentiment that I whipped up on the computer, you are more than welcome to. Just click, right click and save or go to the free sentiments box on my sidebar so you can download different sizes.

Ok! Now on to business!!

I decided to use this card as my fortnightly card for the Catered Crop party.

Are you ready to play?
We're stripping down Jessica's fabulous card as the source of our inspiration. Why not swing by her blog and check out her creative genius, she's a pretty talented gal!



(use any or all to make your own unique project)
In red you can see the ingredients I used for this card.
  • Colors – red, white, blue, and yellow
  • Stamps and Stickers – happy birthday, sailboats
  • Color Mediums – stamp ink
  •  Embellishments – twine/hemp rope,buttons
  • Tools – punches, border punches, distress tools, sewing machine, die cuts, pearls
  • Techniques – distress, make a square card, paper piecing, sewing, distressing
  • Theme – summer, water, happy birthday


And now on to our cool sponsor!

Inky Antics

 Inky Antics Rubber Stamps is sponsoring our FTR13 challenge. If you're a trend watcher you may have heard of their HoneyPop Collection – an amazing collection of honeycomb paper and coordinating stamps and the big craze at the last Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) convention. With a baker's dozen of illustrators, there's a wide collection of beautiful and whimsical stamps to choose from as well as all the necessities to make a beautiful project. One lucky random winner will get to spend $25 on Inky Antics wood mounted or clear stamps.

So how awesome is that! I hope you all get to play. Remember, you have a whole two weeks to create a project and with a recipe like this there should be no excuses!

Hi Dorcas!
Superadorable card you have created. Loooove the image and the colouring is fantastic. I was bold enough to help myself to your sentiment, lol. Thanks for sharing. Thanks for making me aware of the problem with my blog and the scrolling. I wasn`t aware of this. If i create pages to hide away all my "unuseful" stuff, do you think it would go faster then?

Hugs...Mona
