Forbidden Love

Happy Friday!  Today I have a different kind of Valentine to share.  This poor brave knight wishes to give his love a rose for Valentine's Day, but a dragon has other ideas.

We are partnered this month with Faerie Songs Art Stamps and I have two fabulous dragon stamps to play with. 

I began by using Art Anthology paint on a piece of card stock.  I brushed and tamped the paint onto the paper so that there was a random pattern.  Then I used pigment ink to stamp the dragon and used clear embossing powder to set the ink.  The paint gave him a wonderful color and shine! 

After cutting him off of his cloud, a white Uniball gel pen was used to highlight his eyes and teeth.  Maya Mist paint was sprayed into a paint palette and thin brush was used to paint over his ridged back.  The Maya Mist is shiny and worked well over the other paint.

Scrapbook paper and collage images make up the rest of this Medieval Valentine.  The list is below in the supplies.

Will our brave hero win the heart of the fair damsel?  You and your Valentine decide!!!

Dragon stamps by Faerie Song Art Stamps

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
