Ahoy There!


Well here we are at Friday and another Bank Holiday Weekend to enjoy! I have made my card for my Grandson Luca. As he has been very poorly with Tonsillitis and he loves the Magnolia pirate images.

I have coloured my Magnolia images with distress ink pads. I have stamped them onto Waterford water colour paper with versafine onyx. The background has been distressed with weathered wood and the edges have been distressed with walnut stain.

I have added stickle glue in gold and star dust. I have also used a clear star dust sakura pen to different elements for added shine. The letters are quickutz.

Well thank you so very much for visiting me and for all your wonderful comments I really appreciate each and every one of them,  and I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
