Aged Pirate Card

Have to say I am so happy with how this turned out.

I made it for a friend who reminds me of a Pirate and when I set out to make the card I thought oooh I want to do a treasure type map card.

I forgot how much I love to make something look old and aged even if it was white to begin with.

The background is a combo of Handmade distress re-inker mists, glimmer mist, and Tsukinedo walnut mist.

I used stamps from Tim Holtz, prima and some from a cheap pirate and princess set I have mostly stamped in Distress ink and Archival Jet Black.

There is tissue tape underneath the film strip ribbon (my first use of it on a card or anything of my own work other than the Tim Holtz workshop a couple of years ago)

And I even parted with one of the Idea-ology skull and crossbones charms which I rubbed a little bit of distress paint over to make it fit the card a wee bit better.

Anyway that is my Aged Pirate Card that I had a lot of fun experimenting and stepping out of my usual clean uncluttered style with.
