I am back...FINALLY! My poor stamp table has been collecting dust! LOL! I needed to make a card for my FIL's birthday today. I am sure you may be wondering why in the world would I make such a childish card for my FIL. Let me explain: My FIL has quite a collection of Pinball machines and arcade games. I made him Pirates of the Caribbean and NASCAR curtains for his Pinball Parlor. They will be his birthday gift. So...in the spirit of the gift, I decided to make a Pirate card. I think he will get a kick out of it anyway! I love coloring this image with my copic and prismacolor markers. I don't think I have ever watercolored this little guy. I added the parrot atop his head using my Stamp-a-majig. As you can see, I did a lot of sponging. Lots of layers for color and dimension. I didn't add too much hardware because it is for a man, just a quick staple to adhere the tab with the sentiment. Pretty straightforward. Thanks for hanging in there during my absence. I have a busy week with volunteering at the school, finishing up DT assignments, etc. but I will hopefully be able to find some time to share some creations with you.
