TGIF 'Pirates' Challenge
The theme at TGIF challenge this week is 'Pirates', this has given the perfect opportunity to use this cute Sugar Nellie pirate stamp. I have stamped the image and coloured it with Prismacolors and Sansador and I added Glossy Accents to the buckles and knife handle. I have embossed the red card with a Cuttlebug and the Swiss Dots folder. The greeting is from Studio G and the base card is stamped with a Magnolia skull stamp.
We went to get the paint for the kitchen last night and decided on the colour, Tarragon, but we saw that it's on offer this weekend so we'll have to go back later today to get it plus I want to get a few bits for the garden as well.
