Knight in shining armor

Here's a manly valentine using the faux metal technique:
"My knight in shining armor"  is faux engraved into the gold plate under the image (sorry the scan doesn't show it well).  The DP and the stamp are from The Angel Company.  I love the stamp set, but I hate coloring, so I don't use it as often as I might.  I excaped coloring this one by burnishing it with distress inks.

Challenges:
Dude Time Doodles - sketch
Cards for Men - manly valentine
Let's Ink It Up - real rubber stamps/romance
Sentimental Sundays - valentine with a sentiment
Ellephantastic - love/distressing
