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.

Happy Birthday to me = New Stash

And boy did I get spoilt namely by my sister and nieces and my friend Catharine when it comes to craft supplies (I also got money off my mum which sadly went to new clothes and not craft supplies and some shoes off a friend)

First of all (not pictured) Catharine sent me a set of rectangle nesting dies from M Press, some of the new Mirrored sheeting, and two of the Tim Holtz ATC rubber cling stamps as well as all of this:

and from my Sister and nieces I got all this

I have been so busy with other things such as an Art Workshop and wedding place cards for a friend that I have not had a really good play with it all yet but be assured I will.

I got so much Idea ology and Tim stuff how could I not feel totally spoilt.
