Ahoy Matey

Hi guys,

It is finally the weekend, and I have a day off work tomorrow - but of course it is going to rain, so it looks like I will not be getting much done in the garden. Fingers crossed for a bit of sunshine though!!

I have a pirate themed card to share with you all today (although it is not the usual sort you imagine when you think pirates lol). The image is from The Stamping Chef - I am currently unable to get a link to the store, or the image.

firstly I selected a card blank with an embossed frame edge. I took a scrap piece of white card and using a free chevron stencil and some acrylic spray I patterned that card. I then spritzed with an orange and pink mix of mica powders. Before adding this to the card front I heat-set using a heat gun. The image was coloured with Promarkers and cut into a diamond shape. The edges were inked with Pretty Colour Pink and the panel was layered over the patterned panel. To finish the pearls were added down the side, and some corner peel-offs also added. Finally I spritzed the whole card with a gold mice powder.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Monday - Shimmer and Shine
CCEE1738 Pirates
Allsorts #434 Things with Wings
TIOT - My Friend
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch 121 (I have twisted to the side)

Card Mania #96 Rustic/Shabby Chic

I have some pictures from when me and the mother-in-law went to the working farm near where we were staying in Lancashire (called Old Holly Farm), ad fed the little calves!

I think we were supposed to feed them with the stuff bought from the shop, but they seemed to much prefer to try eating me instead!!! lol.

Thanks for looking
