Hi again friends, well this is my second post today, I've been working on this little creation for a couple of days now for the Simon Says Challenge. I thought doing a pirate card would be easy peasy especially as I had the images. How silly am I. I didn't have any pirate papers or stash of any form for it.
But never say die me hearties!! I wanted to do blue and yellow as this is for a wee boy from a wee girl. So I coloured the images with my promarkers, then started searching for the paper, I came across a fragment of claire curd yellow signature paper I bought when it was released early in 2009. I'm so grateful for my scrap stash box. The sentiments were easy, I printed them off the computer and then with a ticket stamp (I removed the saying on the inside) I stamped round the words.
Now for some embellishments, Mm..... so this morning I went into Microsoft word and downloaded a couple of clip arts, I coloured the blue chest with promarkers and the little yellow one came already coloured. The boat I made on the computer using shapes and the colour pallet in word. Hey Presto!! I had it done. I'm quite pleased with the result and I'm sure that Stuart will love it.
I am entering it into two challenges and they are:
1. Simon Says Challenge: this week it is a Pirate theme and if you are struggling like me with the theme then pop over to Martine's blog, she has created some lovely papers and embellishments to help you with the challenge. I had nearly finished mine, but I've downloaded them anyway, they are fabulous.
2. Paperplay Challenge: Are looking for Something Old this week, my paper is over a year old.
Thank you so much for popping in to see me, please leave me a comment to let me know you visited.
