A Dark and Stormy Knight + a Winner

Hello.  Welcome.  The inclement weather that had been forecast finally arrived so I took all precautions, barricaded myself in my craft room and crafted like a good 'un.  I feel restored.  Over at Viva Las Vegas stamps they have a lovely moody board.  Just perfect for grey rainy days



I used a piece of dictionary paper sent to me by Tricia.  Thanks Tricia.  Hugz.  I stamped VLVS Steampunk Warrior on silver metal and embossed with black embossing powder.  I die cut Sizzix Harlequin Border from black metal, added a section along the bottom of the book paper and some of the diamonds randomly on the card.  I inked the edges with black archival and mounted on a grey card base.

Many moons ago, well one moon ago, I proposed a little Name That Bloke competition on this post.  I would like to thank the five lovely ladies who supplied a name and made me very happy that they played along.  So here's the bloke


And of the names supplied I thought BORIS suited him just fine.  So Tangled Blue Rose
drop me an email with your snail mail address and the doggy stamp is yours.  Thanks again for playing along ladies.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hope you are getting time to be crafty.  Hugz
