It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Peg Leg Pete – R088 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Pirates Birthday – F147 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Peg Leg Pete is showing off his map of previous adventures from his pirating days around the Caribbean. He’s gathered quite a treasure of findings. But, when you are a pirate, there is always more places and ships out there to plunder. LOL!
To make my card this week, I used Scrapberry’s – The Pirate’s Treasure (6×6 Paper Collection) paper for the main background which fit onto a card base of 6″ x 6″ perfectly.
I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock and then coloured it in with Copic markers. Next, I fussy cut around the entire image and used a black marker to go around all of the edges.
To create the look of a ship in the background, I cut 2 small pieces of paper from Joy Crafts – Wood Texture and Joy Crafts Tough Textures miniature 4 x 9 designs. Then I joined them both together using 2-sided tape. Next, I ran both pieces through my Cuttlebug using My Creative Time – More Stitched Circles die cut. I popped up both the image and the small half circle background with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and placed it in the centre of the card.
Once again, I used my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink for the sentiment. I taped down the sentiment onto some scrap red cardstock and bumped it up on the card with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Lastly, to finish it off, I went around the entire outer edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rusty Hinge and added a few Kraftin Kimmie – Seashore Dots.
