Caribbean Twist…

Hello crafty friends, I have had such a busy week that I haven’t had the chance to craft and blog as much as I wanted to… job applications & job interviews kinda get it the way bit…lol…but needs must eh… I have gone with a ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ theme with a bit of a twist. I think I have gone abit OTT…again…but hay ho that’s all part of the fun! I used some treasure map papers from my stash as the background and distressed the edges with Walnut Stain and made 2 matts also from the paper, used the Magnolia scroll stamp and cut it out and crinkled it before using distress inks on that too. Made a ‘Jolly Roger’ flag charm from shrink plastic and used my Slice machine to cut out the 3 button stars, coloured Pirate Tilda, Parrot & accessories with Prisma pencils and blended with Sansador, used Magnolia & Whimsy Stamps sentiments and most of the embellishments have been ‘stickled’ and used lace from WOC.
I am entering this card into the following challenges: Totally Tilda Challenges – Challenge #20 Tilda From Around The World (But Not England) and Just Magnolia - Week 101 – A sketch and Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge #129 – Our Feathered Friends Thank you for your lovely comments, they really make my day!!
