Ahoy, Matey!


Yesterday we went and saw Madagascar 2 and then my Mom, Step-Dad and Sister came over to my house and we played one of my son's games called "Pirate's Cove". We didnt' get a chance to play it on Thanksgiving like we had planned, so we promised him we would play it soon. Let me just say...It is a really fun game and it is really well planned and put together. I love all of the details throughout the game. Anyway...it inspired me to make a Pirate card so I knew that whatever Jen's sketch challenge would be, I would make it into a Pirate card. Who would have known it would work so well? You can check out her sketch and card over at http://www.iheart2stamp.com/ . I used the "Ahoy Matey" stamp set and coordinating wheel from SU! I also paired it with the much beloved "Muirfield" DSP. I colored the wheeled image first using copics and prismacolor markers and from there, the color palette was created. I was thrilled that the "Muirfield" DSP worked perfectly. I sponged, distressed, and tore the edges for a time-worn look. I had a lot of fun with this! Thanks for fluttering by!
