Treasures For Ye! - Gift folder

Don't forget my Blog Candy in the Post Below for High Hopes New Release Stamps!! You all have until Friday to enter!!! I love this little High Hopes pirate....well....I love all High Hopes New Release Stamps!!! I created this gift folder using this Fabulous Tutorial I found on Frances Blog FranMade. It is so easy to make!! I know I will be making more of these wonderful folders!! Frances is also offering Wonderful Blog Candy to celebrate her Birthday and blog traffic...so go here FranMade to learn how to enter and see her Gorgeous creations!!

On this folder I used "On Guard Oberto", "Treasure Map", "Ships Wheel" and "Anchor". You can find these and all High Hopes New Release stamps right here.

The "Treasures For Ye!" is actually single words I just inked up off of the main High Hopes New Release sentiments.

I put diamond glaze on the eye patch and the handle of the sword (big knife).

The sentiment and scalloped base are popped up on foam dimensionals. The trim or netting on the front was a roll I found in my craft stash...I'm not sure what it is called.

Paper: whisper white, basic grey, dcwv, michaels Ink: versafine black, bashful blue, creamy caramel, close to cocoa, blue bayou, cranberry crisp Accessories: brad, cord, nestabilities, stardust pen, stickles, diamond glaze, stitching

The images are colored with prismacolor pencils (OMS) and H20's. Acrylic white paint for accents.

I've been asked what colors of prismacolor pencils I like to use for coloring.....Here is a link and tutorial on the ones I use the most http://artfullyila.blogspot.com/search/label/Tutorials

Have a Great Day Everyone!! Thank you for all your lovely comments and for entering for the High Hopes Blog Candy!! I have been trying to visit everyone.....it's taking time....but hopefully I will be around soon!.....Hugs, Ila
