Seeing as it's nearly Valentines Day, I decided to do my one and only Valentine card (maybe) that I make each year. It's for my hubby and seeing as he is my Knight in shining armour, I decided to use an image I also used here, who would think it could be so versatile? However I couldn't think of a sentiment to match him and then!!!!! someone used the word "enamoured" on TV. A little change in the word and it became my sentiment, well he has armour! I looked up Google to make sure I was using the word correctly, they say I should use "of you", I would have used "with you", but I wanted to be correct. I wonder what you would have used?
Anyhow, I took the digital stamp into my die cutting machine, as I normally do, to cut him out 3 times for a good strong layer. I then coloured him in Distress Inks and added Clear sparkle pen, for his armour to shine.
I searched for armour paper or something to do with Knights in my files and came across this perfect paper, it has arrows, they had to be fired onto the heart by English Long bows. Didn't they? They were known as the best in Medieval times!
I then printed out the background and the sentiment piece. I decided to make the heart of the paper into a shield shape and make it 3D. I intended to cut it with my Cameo, but I shut down everything before cutting! duh! so I set about fussy cutting. It has a narrow border, I added it with 3D pads. All finished and I have to say I think he will smile at this.
