DREAMING WITH THE DRAGON'S TAG...

Hello my Lovelies thanks for popping into my nest.
I was dreaming with the dragon's, this had got to be the most far out and freakiest creation I've ever made this was way out of my comfort zone..
The challenge is the letter K and hearts, hearts, my DS Sandy sent me some hearts she made out of some mixed media paper. I never thought I would use them, until I thought, in a fantasy land the King of Kindness would be all heart (s) sorry for the pun...



 I started with a piece of cardboard, peeled then gessoed it.
I took a piece of water color paper and some of Tim's rusty hinge and broken china ink, mixed with water and ran my torn piece of paper through it, I've been wanting to try those 2 colors since I saw it on Miss Alison's gorgeous creation, love them together, spritzed it with some water, for all those lovely water marks.
 I used some watered Inca gold used my fan brush to splash gold all over and  around the edge.
 I stamped the word kindness in broken china and a tiny ancient tile in the rusty hinge.
I used the same on the top seam binding..

 I made the King his own Banner, dyed a piece of silk ribbon, stamped his Title on it, used a black wooden block ( to hold chopsticks ), run the ribbon over a tie clip, cover it with a metal embellishment.


 I tried to make a body with the hearts, I have no men stamps, so Miss Julie Ann had made a man from a female face, this is my attempt of a mans face, I made his crown with a piece of  plastic shrink and a gold heart on top, I gave him a tiny lace collar.


                        You can see all the texture on these hearts...

 I melted some wax and stamped a K in it to put on his chest plate, added a lace and gem belt.


Thank you all for stopping by and letting me share my far out and freaky tag, have a wonderful weekend.
I'm entering this into the Dragon's Dream challenge here.
Did I mention I was one of the Dreamboat 3, SQUAWK.... I am honored and tickled pink, I love their challenges, hop over there to see all the creations that inspire me to dream with them too.....
                                          ((( BIG HUGS )))

                                             NAMASTE!!!!
