Shiver Me Timbers
Fashionable Stamping Challenges we would like you to make a card for a child, any age/ any occasion. As we are surrounded in our family by boys, with only one girl, I though maybe a card for one of the boys would be useful to get ahead. Pirates are very popular, thanks to the wonderful Johnny Depp and the Pirates of the Caribbean series of films. I bought this set of Pirate stamps ages ago and almost forgot I had them. The pirate is actually from an old wooden stamp which I removed from the block and adjusted, I am much happier with him now. I heat embossed several stamps to provide a resist for when I added several colours of TH Distress inks to the main card. I acquired an old map, distressed it , added a red cross on one of the Caribbean islands, to mark the treasure. Seems they have found it, a chest with jewels and doubloons. I added some twine to look like rope on the ship, with a few additional slip knots. i look forward to visiting your blogs to see the Child's Card you have made. Please do to pop over to the main blog for the Design Team have made amazing cards for this challenge. Important things to remember are we don't allow Digi Stamps,and there must be some very evident stamping showing, for it is Fashionable Stamping. Have fun and thanks for your visit and if you have left me comments, many thanks for those too.
