Knight in Shining Armor

Hi all, it is going to be a short post because it is our 31st wedding anniversary and we are about to go celebrate! Just wanted to show you the card that I made for my husband. I have always said that he was my knight in shining armor. So I found an image online and printed out, outlined it in a Sakura Gelly Roll Silver Star pen to give the armor that "shiny" appearance. Then I cut out parts of the armor from another of the images and popped them up on dimensionals for depth. Lastly I gave the knight a frill for the top of his helmet with quilling curls. I layered the image onto some pewter metallic card stock and again onto black. The "shield" has a flur de lis brad and the small black stripes are quilling strips.
Here are some close-ups so you can see the shiny armor and dimension and inside of card.

Time to say good-by for now, I have several more posts of finished projects coming this week!





Comments welcome as always!

What a fabulous card! Lots of special details and it looks so masculine. Love how you did the black ribbon that runs down the length.

cette carte est magnifique !
moi qui ai toujours du mal à créer des carte masculines celle ci est particulièrement réussie : je peux m'en inspirer ?

The translator feature doesn't translate the comments unfortunately. So that everyone can read the comments posted in another language I put it in the translator and post it under the original comment. The translation comes out word for word and sometimes the meaning and words are "lost in translation", but you can get the "gist" of it!
