Sketch Saturday 47 - using Stamps I won

Sketch Saturday - Challenge 47
Great sketch this week I decided to use my stamps I was sent a couple of weeks ago
Its my friends birthday on St Georges Day so I thought I would do a combined card
I stamp St George twice once on white card and once on Mira card with a Stazon ink pad
I then paper pierced the armour onto St George
I coloured his face a little colour on the shield using my Tria Markers
The Dragon was printed on white card and a little colour added by the Tria Markers
The text was done in word
I inked the card edges with a colorbox ink Cranberry
The floral paper is the same paper I used on my last card
but this time I inked it with my stamp pads to give it a pink tinge
The circle and the strip of black paper are all of cuts of wallpaper from my local DIY store
Thanks for a great Sketch and thanks for the stamps I love them
Sorry about photo Mira boards kept reflecting even without flash
