Land Ahoy

Awww How cute is this image? Just had to have it and ink it up. It's quite apt really as I've just booked the seats for Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides in 3D :) whoo hoo !

Anyway the gorgeous image is called "Land Ahoy" and is a new release from "Lili of The Valley" stamps the sentiment is also by them. It has been coloured with my promarkers: apricot, honeycombe, ginger, tan, caramel, cinnamon, midnight blue, black, cool grey 1-5, satin, blush, dusky pink, berry red and Vanilla.

I have used up scraps of old 12 x 12 design papers. The checked paper is My Minds Eye, unsure about the spotted paper as it's quite old. I distressed the papers to add to the shabby feel of the card and added some "Bakers Divine Twine" (Ribbon Girl) to finish the card.

I used up some more scraps to decorate the inside of the card, leaving a blank panel for the sentiment.


I am entering the following challenges:

Jules' Crafty Snippet Challenge # 19 (Just For Fun).
Cute Card Thursday #164 It's So Distressing.
Lili Of The Valley #96 Ribbons And Bows (If divine twine does not count as ribbon, please scratch me off).
