My knight

I have been wanting to make this card since I made my fairycastle and never got round to it. When I saw the challenge on a-spoon-full-of-sugar for a childs card I knew it was time to get doddling and make the castle.I have created the castle on the computer, printed and then coloured it with prisma pencils and highlights with my copic pens. That took awhile until I was happy with it and this was the second one I coloured. I then stuck it to the grey card and cut around it. I embossed the towers and stuck them with pads to add dimension.
I coloured the knight and the dragon with my copic pens. The sheild that the knight is holding I drew the St Andrews cross on and 3d glazed it so it looks like it is enamaled.
Stamps: Knight sugar nellie
Dragon: I can't remember
Castle my creation
Prisma pencils and copic pens for colouring.
