My Prince Charming

Well Ive had another attempt with the Copic Pens, it seems I even encouraged Poppy to try hers again, then stupidly missed that in her post, sorry Poppy I dont how it happened but you did do a brilliant job with them.

Anyway the images I have chosen this time are two Whiff of Joy Medival stamps, Charlie and the Horse. I tried several ways of trying to mask one or the other so that I could actually sit Charlie on the horse but unfortunately I just couldnt get him positioned in the right place, so I chickened out and actually stamped them onto card and coloured them with my copic pens, (Im still rather nervous of using them), and afterwards I cut them both out completely. Ive then positioned Charlie on the horse and stuck him on then arranged him on the main square mount. I then tried not very successfully to put a shadow under the hooves, but it looks a bit cloudy to me and rather heavy, sorry about that.

The base card is another of my now infamous 8"x 8" cards created from a A3 piece of card, I used a brown card for all my mounts this time and two Elusive Images papers, that I arrived with my Guild membership, but you can print them off from one of Artylicious Cds, I cannot say which one it is at the moment.

I actually used one of my flourish stamps with Sepia Versafine inkpad to stamp around the edge of all the mounts, and along the edges. I have stuck the centre mount across the first one and the stamped Image I have put in the centre. The greeting was another of Just-Rite stamps and then cut out with the Oval Nestabilitie die, and for the second mount Ive used a Scalloped one.

To finish of the card Ive used a multi brown layered flower with a brad in the centre and a brown button stuck on top, Ive actually threaded a bit of brown ribbon through and tied a knot, and the last thing Ive done is stuck three clear jewels to the top on the left hand side.
