King Edgar

Edgar is still a bit pouty after his adventures with Tinker, but he has asked me to tell you all that he appreciates your concern.  Currently, he and I are working on the 'tail issue'.  In the meantime, I am only allowed to take head shots, and he does not feel like talking today.



I hope that this creation will help DIVA King Edgar feel better and know he is loved.  It was great fun to create.

I just received some new supplies from Susana at SCACD.  The image is a stamp from the Dylusions Bird on a Wire set.  Ever since I first saw this set, I knew that one day it would be living at my house.  After stamping on white cardstock, I mixed up some of the new dragonfly Luminarte mica powder with glaze and painted around the image.  I know that color doesn't look like dragonfly, but I promise you, I am 98.9% positive it is.  I was doing a lot of playing, so I may have messed up, but I don't think so.  Don't worry, I will test it again later because, well, why not?  This stuff is SO fun, that I promise, you will want to play, and play, and play and....  WAIT, where was I?  Oh, yes, how to.  The crown is one of the Maya Road Mini chipboard pieces painted with black acrylic.  The images on the bottom are the bonus stamp from the Fairylicious Collection you get when you purchase the entire set.

I then used the edge of my scissors to distress the sides and tapped on some black ink with a sponge.  I mounted it on a black piece of cardstock to give it just a teeny tiny frame.
