this month's release is amazing, whimsical and SO CUTE!
today the whole team is showing off the Knight’s Quest + coordinating dies! you can totally create a project life type spread, gift tags and, of course, cards! all of the new sets will be available for purchase on August 18th, right here!

guys, this release is epic! look at this knight!! eeeeee!

i am in LOVE with his shiny armor!! ha! I used Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks for the sky and Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks for the grass! then i spritzed the whole background with lots of water around the edges, for some texture!

I couldn't resist coloring his armor gold and adding some clear enamel to his shield and that dragon's fire! 

my 2nd card needed rainbows!! you knew it was coming!! 

squeeee! love him!!! i used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then die cut it out with the coordinating dies! I even cut some vellum grass for that sweet horse to munch on! ha!

the background was created with Distress Oxide Inks in Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover!
