The card base was cut using the Grand Nestie scalloped circles. The paper is from the Nitwit Land Ho collection. I have three sets of pirate stamps (!) and I use these papers a lot - who knew how difficult it would be to source fab pirate backing papers? I distressed the edge of the white card and the decorative paper with old paper distress ink. The image is coloured with copics and a few spectrum noir pens (still getting used to the speccies). The sea has been glazed with crystal lacquer. The raffia ribbon is from Wild Orchid Crafts and is great to use on 'man cards' (better than girly ribbon!).
This is the first outing for my new pendant die and I have a feeling that in future lots of my cards will feature bunting lol. I bought it on ebay but I think it is a Whimsy Stamp die. The little bottle is from a Tim Holtz collection of bottles. Only problem is, it's a set of about 9 bottles and I only want to use the smallest four! I have no idea where to buy little bottles - I'd prefer to use plastic - if you have any ideas please let me know.
I am half way through making another Christmas card - at this rate I'll never be ready for Christmas. Maybe I could make pirate themed Christmas cards. Now there's a thought. lol.
