K is for...

Hi blog friends - good to see you!  If you've been keeping up with the Craft Barn Alpha challenge, you will know that we're up to K.  Not the easiest letter, even if it is the initial of my first name. After toying with "King" or "Kite" or "Kitten", I finally decided on - "Knight".
The knight chess piece is from an "Alice in Wonderland"  set I've had for years.  I masked it out and stamped the tiled floor (from Lost Coast Stamps) over the top, blended Weathered Wood and Pumice Stone DI's over the back and added the shadow around the knight with grey Promarkers.

And that's it.  Short & sweet tonight, folks - the OH is in hospital (don't worry, it's pretty minor stuff) so I'm off to visit the sick!

See you soon!

Crafty Hugs,

Keren

Love your knight page, I have actually picked the same word, but my page is totally different from yours. Love that, when people's minds work so differently to the same word. I'm just finishing it up and will enter it today. Hugs Frea
