Hi all, and today’s card features what might not now pass as a particularly masculine image, but in the Tudor period, he would have been ‘the bee’s knees!’ LOL. The young man in question with the shoe dilemma is a digi of Mo Manning’s of course. He might well look a bit embarrassed to have that assortment of shoes around him, but he has chosen a golden pair to match his crown. If he lived near me, I would advise Wellingtons instead. LOL.

I have used Promarkers to colour him in, aiming to get a bit of weight to his velvet robes. The colours are regally bold and bright with a good amount of gold mirri, punched with a border punch from Fiskars to create a royal frame. I went with 3 ‘amethysts’ rather than ‘rubies’ which would have matched the one on his pendant, and voila – a card fit for any young prince about town.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.
