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.

Layouts from ‘the Vault’ final Part

Just a few more to share with you all and then it is on to new adventures 🙂

Something a little yellow and sunshiney. My Doodle geenies always get a workout even now I still use them as they make great sewing and bling templates and have limitless possibilities on layouts and cards.

I love puppy Noel as I had a lot of pics that were full of empty bits of space or stuff that I did not really want to use so cut them into shapes for this one (perhaps it should have gone in the Christmas post but I must have missed it. A technique I really love is to colour chipboard or wooden embellishments, add some embossing powder heat it and then press stamping foil over the top for a sort of vintagy old worn look with a bit of added sparkle.

My Favourite Teacher was created for a step by step. I wanted to show how easy it can be to deconstruct a piece of patterned paper with a bit of fussy cutting while still allowing for whoever did the step by step to add their own touches and extra embelishments and such.

and lastly not a perfect layout by any means but a bit of fun 🙂 me as a pirate
