Well, Shiver Me Timbers!!!



I had yet to play with the Pirate line of stamps that have just been released by High Hopes, so this weekend I made this one!!!

I pulled out Peg Leg Pete and stamped him on Wausau bright white cardstock using Archival Brilliance Graphite Black ink and coloured him in using my Copic markers. This guy looks JUST like a cute pirate should, with his skull and crossbones, his sword, his 'pirate shirt' and his peg leg!! Hahaha! I sponged around the main image with Tea Dye ink by Ranger using a cosmetic wedge sponge. Then I took my distressing tool and roughed it all up. I did the same to the Really Rust layer underneath and then added three antique brads on the upper right.



The 'old' paper underneath is just a piece of dp from the Once Upon a Time DCWV stack and I crumpled it all up several times, distressed the edges and stamped the sentiment on it. I attached it to the Not Quite Navy card base and wrapped some linen thread around it three times. I pop dotted the main image and that's the front!!



Then I made a layer for the inside using the Anchor and another sentiment. I think any little pirate would enjoy receiving a card with those cute stamps on it!!! Don't you, Savvy??

Don't forget that you have until Sunday night to get your entries in to win some DELICIOUS Magnolia Kandy!!!
