Knight In Shining Armour

Hey Hey, what do you say? Are you ready for another Marvelous Monday at Shelly's Images?! We have a fun image to share with you today. Those of you who love medievil times will love this one! I fell in love with it when I seen it and knew I had to create something special with him!

Our featured image today at Shelly's Images is this cute boy on a horse, called Knight. I've used him to make this fun altered castle as a gift for a friend who loves Medievil and fantasy as much as I do.

Remember, Knight is available for a special price, today only, in the Shelly's Images Store.

After you are done here looking at my castle, We'd love it if you'd op on over to Shelly's Images and check out the wonderful creations by the rest of the design team.

I found this cool wooden castle at Michael's and knew instantly it would be perfect to go with the Knight image! I used paint daubers by Adirondack, to paint the castle silver. The image is colored with Promarkers. I used scraps of patterned paper and the new banner punch from Stampin Up to create the fun banner to hang from the castle. The image is attached with foam mounting tape for dimension.

I had so much fun making my little castle. I hope you like it!

I am entering this awesome castle in the following challenges:
