Ahoy Me Hearties! Pirate themed shaped card - Day 117 of my 365 day challenge

Ahoy Me Hearties! Pirate themed shaped card - 
Day 117 of my 365 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

I had great fun making this Pirate themed 6in shaped card using For the Love of Stamps and Masks which I have coloured in using Distress inks and alcohol markers.


How I made this card:-
  • I first of all placed the Shiver My Timbers For the Love of Masks stencil (from their new collection) on the front of a 6" scalloped edged card and coloured the edges using Tim Holtz's Rusty Hinge Distress Inks.
  • I also stencilled through the Ahoy Me Hearties (and sword) with the same ink.
  • I then used the two Pirate characters, Pirate ship, Desert Island and Treasure Chest and stamped them out on white stamping card using Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad.
  • I coloured them in using alcohol markers and cut them out leaving a narrow white border around them 
  • I cut two pieces of blue paper (trying to make them look wave like) and stuck them to the bottom of the card (leaving a bit unstuck so I can add the stamped images behind them).
  • I then coloured the third piece of paper with the Rusty Hinge ink and cut it so it looked like an island and glued it to the centre/bottom of the card.
  • I then attached the rest of the characters to the scene using foam pads to raise the ships' sails.

And there you are a card that is a fun card which is simple to make and would be great to give!
