Zachary's Birthday



Our oldest child, Zachary, turns 9 on Tuesday. He's is having a Pirates of the Caribbean theme for his birthday, so I made this pirate card for him. The distressing was created with the Fiskars deckle scissors, Cutter's Kit and a Stampin' Sponge with Creamy Caramel ink. The map is created using BasicGrey papers: Perhaps (land), Blush (sea). To create the sparkle, I used my Stardust Gelly Roll pen. I made the map wavy by curving it around a pen back and forth, and mounted it with Stampin' Dimensionals. Each side is punched with the 1/16th circle hand punch, and tied around the Close to Cocoa layer with Natural Hemp. The main image is watercolored with my ink refills, and Aqua Painter. I used a Blender Pen converted into a Cool Caribbean marker, to outline the pirate. I made some highlights with my Signo Gel Pen.

Thanks for visiting!

How awesome! The deckled white looks so real (as in really old). I love the two colors for the map and the large brown mat. Too cool! Zachary must love it.
