"OOh aah, me hearties....

HOW MUCH FUN HAVE I HAD????? This card was just a
delight to make, the image is a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp and
this little character is called Billy Blyth, there is a great
challenge going on over at Kraftin' Kimmie's Blog (Create a
Scene) so I shall be entering this card into it.
There are some fab stamps in this Pirate range and I just love
them all!! I got my stamps from the lovely Nikki at the fab
Bunny Zoe's Craft shop and also that great skull charm,
which arrived the very next day! Whoopee!
I have made an easel card just so I could super embellish it!
The map has been made from DC Funky Vintage papers which
I have distressed using an emery board, lighter to scorch
and burn the holes (How much fun)!! and the smell mm
burning paper,
reminded me of our old coal fire! I added some thin gold paper
from a chocolate bar wrapping (extra energy needed)! hee hee,
placed it under the holes and between the card stock panels.
The trail has been made using red dashes with different locations,
Blood River, Serpent Pass,
Skullduggery etc; Do you like my little buried treasure

booty, all sorts of embellies plus the two gold coins were
stamped with the skull and cross bone stamp onto shrink
plastic, punched out with a small circular punch and
heated, these came out fab! The compass and flags were
printed from the computer, I have hand drawn the little
Pirate Spyglass and distressed it, all distressing has been
done using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo. Billy Blyth has been
water coloured and a little silver link has been added for
his earring! Plus I gave him a bit of eyeliner!! Think that
everything, hope you enjoy following the trail and you
find your pot of gold! TFL, Happy Crafting, Ooh I
have just seen over at A Spoonful of Sugar they
are asking for cards where you have used distress inks,
well this certainly has been inked and distressed, so I am
entering it into that fab challenge too, Sue xx
