JFF Medieval

This is the last week of past times challenges at JFF and we have one far back in time to Medieval (I thought it was going to be Victorian but how wrong was I - Von, Zoe and Neet really know how to keep us on our toes LOL). To me Medieval is Knights in shinning armour and rich reds, golds and purple, but then I was bought up on a diet of Hollywood and Errol Flynn films so not surprising that's where my head went. I used a tag and found the image on The Graphics Fairy and did some brush work on it, I also had just purchased some CI stamps which had the 3 lions and the saying amongst it (perfect). I used red card and stamped a crackle background  in purple with some gold swirls. Richard the Lion Heart I think.Thanks for looking & Hugs All XXXXXX
