Ahoy Matey!! Here's a fun Friday card featuring my adorable new pirate images from Jessica Lynn Original. I really like these because they LOOK piratey - not all cutesey'd up like some I've seen lately, YKWIM? Anyway, they were perfect for several challenges when I sat down to stamp today ~ love it when a plan comes together!! But what the heck am I talking about cupcakes for?? I used Taylor's Cupcake Challenge for the sketch (TECC35) even though I am aware that pirate ships are not cupcakes, heehee.
I wanted to use Kraft today for the Verve September Project Parade - Natural Fiber Challenge. I was thrilled to see this one because I LOVE Kraft! I haven't used it in awhile though, now that I think about it, so this was a fabulous push in the right direction. Since I wanted Kraft in there anyway, I went with the colors from this week's Color Throwdown of Olive, Kraft and Red (CTD12). Nice! They were probably thinking Christmas but hey, pirates work too!
This is a pretty straightforward card. I cut all the cardstock to size, then ran the red layer through my Cuttlebug with the Skull Scroll folder. Then I covered the whole thing with Angel Dust Shimmerz to give it some more depth. After I stamped the skull images I painted over them with Coal Shimmerz. Go Shimmerz! I colored the ship with Copics and layered it on. Lots of dimensionals here as usual, I need a place to buy those babies in BULK. May Arts ribbon finishes it off, and the sentiment is from another Jessica Lynn Original set (Adventure), punched out with the Word Window punch.
