I'm a little too tired to weave a narrative of challenge inspiration, which anyway is always "look for several challenges that can go together and do them", so I'm just going to list the challenges I'm entering up front.
I'm entering this bookmark in the following challenges:
- Simon Says Stamp and Show: Hero (the knight)
- Art Impressions Challenge 80: Rainbow (red tabard, orange flame, yellow shield, green dragon, blue horse caparison)
- Divas by Design Challenge 52: For A Child (great for any kid who likes to play pretend... and you can pretend the knight is male or female as you wish, which is pretty cool)
- Crafty Card Makers Challenge 74: Winged Things (the dragon)
- Willow Sketchie: Sketch or Things with Wings (winged dragon)
- Delightful Challenges: Anything But A Card (it's a bookmark!)
I'm also linking it up to DL.ART's 1000-post Linky Party.
At this point you know I've made a bookmark with a colorful knight and dragon. Also, the dragon has wings. They're likely childish in style.
The picture seems a little anticlimactic.
It's bright and cheerful, although the composition could have been better. At the very least I could have placed the rear of the horse off the edge, mirroring the way the dragon is positioned. Still: bright and cheerful. Rainbow colors may not exactly stretch my boundaries but darn it they feel good. Look at this bookmark. Look at this selection of inspiration photos from Art Impressions. Tell me you don't feel like your day is a little more cheerful.
Once I called the bookmark "Primary Knight" I began to wonder whether the knight is fighting the dragon because it's a dragon, or because it's made up of secondary colors. Clearly he's already vanquished something purple.
