Friday Sketchers #13!!! by ME!!

It's time for another crafty installment of the Friday Sketchers Challenge!!! Hahaha!! And it's my week to design and share some inspiration!!

I actually took the sketch from a card I made a little while ago, because I liked it so much! You might remember the square card in this post. Well I wanted to make another with my original sketch, so here it is!!



I decided to make a pirate card, aaarrrrghhhhh!! All the stamps that I used on this creation are part of the August Project of the Month over at High Hopes Rubber Stamps!! If you purchase all of the images, you get them at a 25% discount!!! Yippee!!!



So I stamped On Guard Oberto on Wausau bright white cardstock using Archival Brilliance Graphite Black ink and coloured him in using my Copics, of course!!! I stamped the Treasure Map on Kraft cardstock, sponged around all the edges with distress ink and then crumpled the heck out of it!! I think it really looks like an ancient piece of parchment that might have a secret map on it, don't you???



The patterned paper is by Deja Views and the colours are perfect for a pirate card. The square card base is Chocolate Chip and for accenting and matting I used Really Rust, Vintage Violet, Creamy Caramel and Certainly Celery. I stamped the Ship's Wheel on the Creamy Caramel strip in CC ink and sponged the edges of it as well. The round antique brads are from the dollar store and I stamped the sentiment on the CC strip. Lastly I made the little layers of circle punches in the corner and popped up Polly the Parrot on top! Isn't he cute??

Now be sure to head over to the Friday Sketchers blog and check out what our fabulous team of artists have come up with to inspire you!!!

AND as if the inspiration to get stampin' isn't enough.......Phebe at The Town Scrapper is sponsoring this week's challenge and would you like to know what you could win???? Of course you do!!! One random winner will win The Jungle Background, Timothy Tiger and Friends Furr ever from the High Hopes line of awesome unmounted stamps!!!

I am taking off for a couple of days with my family, so I'll be away from the computer. We really need to spend some time together and just relax! We're really looking forward to it. But I won't be posting again until Monday morning!!! Try not to miss me!! hahahaha!! Have a wonderful weekend!!!
