Flotnar! Seafaring Viking!

Aloha! or God tag!

Thar be vikings, argh! Let the voyage begin!

We have a good friend and each time I see him, I see a viking! I've always told him this and he laughs! So yesterday he stopped by for a short visit with Bruce and me and I knew it's time to get that card made for him. And here it is!

Years ago I even bought this little stamp set just to make our friend a viking card. While he does not have any facial hair, he is very muscular, fair and has light reddish hair - viking to me! He has muscles on his muscles. After a few minutes, I had to go rest and Bruce spent the rest of an hour or so with him. They had a great time talking about building things.

I looked online for old viking ships and sketched this one out with the mountains, rocks and the hill he is standing on. It's supposed to be a full, moonlit night reflecting on the water. The oars are pulled into the ship (use your imagination). And there is nothing sparkly or shiny on this whole card (yup, haven't done that in a long time).

  1. Great card Rosie. You did a super job of the Viking ship and the mountains. Love the Viking with the verse.

  2. Super background! I have that viking.

  3. Super cute. Your little viking just makes me smile with his big beard and mustache. Great coloring here, your friend will love it.

  4. Oh, my goodness! You are such a great artist to draw all that lovely scene behind your darling Viking. And, the colors are awesome. I bet your friend was so pleased with this too and got lots of smiles when looking at it. I love the no line coloring. I hope you saved a copy for yourself so that you can frame your artwork. This certainly deserves to be framed.


Your kind comments really encourage me a TON! Mahalo nui loa!
