Land ahoy!!

Gosh, what a week! It may take me a couple of weeks to get over this half term!! I made this card a while ago - I've had no time to carft this week and I'm behind with my LOTV DT cards so I'm gonna have to get my skates on this week!!

I really love these magnolia pirate stamps; just how cute are they? I've coloured pirate Edwin and the barrel and anchor with copics and then masked the image. I then used Bev Rochester fabulous cloud template and tumbled glass distress ink to create the sky. The ink dusters from Inkylicious are great for this technique. I used the ink dusters again to apply scattered straw distress ink for the sand.

I stamped the woodware map stamp onto Kraft card and distressed it with walnut stain and a touch of black soot distress ink and then coated it with clear rock candy crackle glaze from Ranger - it gives it a nice distress finish. The little bottle is also from Ranger.

To create the seal in the bottom left of the card I heated gold embossing powder in a foil dish and then poured it onto my non-stick craft mat. Before it set I stamped into it with the compass stamp from Creative Expressions (Travel set).

The scrummy papers are from the NitWit collection Land Ho. I know I use these all the time but they are just delish! The wood effect card I've used to make the box comes from a Cute Companions CD - Summer Stories I think.

Have a lovely evening, hugs, Jayne xx
