Modern Medieval

I have tons and tons of Medieval images, ideas and inspiration roaming around in my studio and my head. I had to put my sarcastic spin on a new subject. Along the way I had an amazing discovery. The wrapping paper I purchased (and never used, sigh) for the workshop has a shiny surface. So I says to myself, Self, why don't you see what happens when you put alcohol ink on it. It looks Incredible, that's what happens!!!! Now, for all of you out there that already know this, just chuckle to yourselves and don't pee on my parade. teehee. This pic is a before and after of the same paper. I am loving it!!

This first ATC is "Blind Date". I used the above paper in all of these, and a medieval tile stamp from The Stampsmith. The face is from Artchix.

"Escape Clause".

"Verbal Abuse". Tissue collage sheet from Blackberry Designs.

"No More Bad Hair Days". All Medieval clip art is
Dover, and Karen's Whimsey. All ATC's have baseball card substrate.

Gonna go eat dinner. I have a strange craving for Grog and Roasted Pig....xoSusan


  1. It is always better to drink your grog andeat your roast when you have a serving lad of good quality and fine looks to serve you - preferable in tights...emmm, Gerald in tights...serving it up...mmmm... oops ! Sunday morning daydreams! ;)
    Love, love love the armor on these more modern chicks faces - cool combo !

  2. Thanks for that tip on the AI and shiny wrapping paper Susan! Love you medieval ATC's.

  3. roast turkey legs for dinner???? love your cards!

  4. I don't know where you get these idea's but keep em coming princes. Sounds like you had a great time, and I'm so happy you did. The ATC's look awesome. I love that background, isn't it wonderful when you discover something.
