Hi Guys! I am getting a late start today. I had my card all downloaded and everything last night but I was just too tired to post it. And this one needs a little explanation.
There is a Renaissance Faire here every summer (first two weekends in June) called The Three Baron's Renaissance Faire. I know there are some Faires that really strive towards accuracy and seriousness - ours is very fun and fantasy - like. The story is there are 3 Baron's - the Green Baron (and Baroness plus their Court) who are evil, the Red Baron (and Baroness plus their Court) who are good (sickeningly so!) and the Blue Baron (and his many wives and Court!) who are mysterious! My friends and I used to go every year, sometimes several times, so we decided to become Vendor's and we now have a craft booth at the fair. I usually make costume pieces but I have been spending much more time card-making this year and so I decided I had to make some cards in honor of the Baron's. I haven't finished the Red or Green Baron's cards, but this is in honor of the Blue Baron. This is the only picture I have with him in it from the last couple of years Faire's. The same guy has been the Blue Baron ever since I started going in the mid 90's and my card was based on my memories of him from then.
I also thought since I was showing Faire stuff I would show an older card of mine that has never been on my blog, based on a dress I made for my daughter for Faire. This is her in the summer of '07.
All of the stamped images are altered Dress Me Anya'a and Ian's from The Greeting Farm and the paper on all of the cards is DCWV. I'm sorry I don't have my list of Copics used on the Baron card this time, and the card with the purple dress used Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits.
Thanks for coming to see me! I hope you have a great weekend!
