Ships Ahoy!

Hello,

Hope your weekend is going well.

pirate edwin ahoy

My card today is using an older Magnolia image of Pirate Edwin. I have masked him over the boat and have 3d the scull and crossbow’s. The flags I stamped twice and stuck them together with decoupage glue to give some depth to them. The bones banner I have added clear crackle paint to give the bones more of an aged look.

I have glimmer misted the paper using silver and distressed this with frayed burlap and added stickle glue stardust.  The sentiment is quickutzed and then I have added stickles. I have also added stardust clear pen to the scull and edge of the tag.

Thank you so much for looking!
