Enchanted Castle Antiquity Shrine

Castle ShrineThe magical, enchanted and mystical world of fairy tales is one that is always nostalgic and wondrous.  I decided to create my own piece of magic using the Castle Antiquity Shrine from Retro Cafe Art.

Magical right?  This shrine houses a Coat in Arms all dressed up in my favorite paint system ever, VerDay.  The shield is part of the Mythos set of Relics & Artifacts.  To give the shield that regal “coat of arms” look add a battle axe and sword from the Medieval Weaponry chipboard set.

For the Griffins standing guard, break out that ol’ heat tool and those embossing powders you keep stashed away and put them to work!

Castle Shrine 5simply covered the castle pieces in beautiful paper from “Enchanted Forest” by Graphic 45 and embellished with Dresden trim.

Castle Shrine 3Some beautiful ball chains or chain from old necklaces add a nice medieval inspired touch.  Just be sure to adhere them with a good, strong adhesive like E6000.  For our evil and menacing dragon, get out that heat tool and embossing powder again.  It really is that simple.

Castle Shrine 6I love bringing the magic of fairy tales to life in my own way.  Why not reach into your imagination and bring some magic to life?

    Love the papers you used on this Chrissy and at first glance it looked like rhinestones but the chains make more since. All of it goes so well together and of course the Relics and Artifacts just pull it together perfectly. Bravo!!! Magic creation!!
