I’m really enjoying some of the challenges on different blogs lately and as soon as I saw the sketch for the Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge #31 I knew exactly which image I wanted to use!
Here’s the sketch: And here’s the card I made featuring Pirate Edwin… he’s just so utterly adorable! I coloured Captain Edwin using Tim Holtz Distress Inks… I love that you can layer colours to create real depth on your image!
The stripe paper is from Imaginisce which I layered with black cardstock… and for the first time EVER I actually got out my sewing machine and stitched the paper together! I can’t believe that it’s taken me so long to do that because I absolutely love the effect! I also added some pirate ribbon that I got from Spotlight along with the glitzy cardstock… it’s super sparkly!! Then I finished it all off with some alpha stickers and black pearls from my stash along with some Tim Holtz embellishments.
So I’ve had a wonderfully creative start to my weekend!
