Arrrgh, Maties! Tis Sunday and time for another Sketch!
I didn't totally follow Sketch #163 as I didn't use the little squares but I did put 3 little elements there. I had purchased a set of pirate stickers at Michael's last weekend for $1 and they have been sitting on my table to be put away. I had gotten a set of unicorns/flowers too but they will have to wait for another time/sketch. Then I saw this morning's Sketch #163 and thought they would work well for this.
The paper is DCWV from a boy's stack but I don't remember the name of it. I used most of a roll of the washi tape by My Mind's Eye 8 roll set from Archiver's. I inked the edges of the 2 pirate papers with brown ink. I cut the plain brown paper in the 4.5 x 2.25" rectangle and tore and inked the edges in black. I also crumpled the paper a bit and inked the folds. I matted it on paper I got at Tuesday Morning. It is called Uptown Gold and it is a metallic but you can't see it very well in the photo. The 2 word stamps are by Hero Arts Crafts' Pirate stamp set., which is a set of 18 tiny stamps (about 1" square). I could have used them but I had the colorful stickers and used them instead. I got about 24 cards done and could make a few more with the bits and pieces. The pirate stickers are almost gone and I have a lot of fish left. The little words probably should have been stamped and matted but I was done before I didn't like it as stamped. I didn't add any ribbon (shock) since the card is for a kid/a guy.
Wow, I have Sketch #163 done for the week already. Now what other trouble can I get myself into? It is so spring-like here. I have my new windows open and the dog is enjoying woofing at everyone walking/biking/running by our house. Have a great Sunday!!
