TIO - The Age of Chivalry

Welcome to another week at TIO and thank you for your entries last time round.

This week, we are dreaming back in bygone days - the Age of Chivalry as chosen by Janet

I knew as soon as I saw the theme I would use my Paperartsy Crown and Castle stamps - only thing missing is a knight in shining armour!

I used antique linen distress ink on the tag, only the blending tool I use is for yellowy colours too, so it's probably a bit of a mixture; and some peeled paint at the entrance to the castle and walnut stain to the edges.  Stamped and cut the key on grungepaper  and a scrap of tag for the sentiment, all from Paperartsy. Hope you come and join us at DragonsDream TIO again.

Love your tag Helen, isn't it funny that sometimes we know exactly what we will use for a theme and on those occasions it all goes together perfectly.

Your tag is marvelous. I think the castle stamp is darling, but it is the key you made that really catches my eye. It looks so real.
