Happy Birthday Pirate!..Magnolia Ink

Here is one of the cards published in the Fairy tale Spring Edition of Magnolia Ink. It has been a while since I made this card...but I will try to list what I can. The stamps used are as follows... CC09 Happy Birthday VA07 Edwin some pirate VA07 Sjorovar banner VA07 Mini Doskaller HW09 So Spooky Label Ink - memento, bashful blue, creamy caramel. Paper - GP, Su Kraft, Basic Grey. Accessories - brads and charm (Magnolia), glitter on wings, raffia, ribbon, metal clip, bling star, button, floss, gold embossing and stitching. Color tools - Copic markers (for skin), Prismacolor pencils, Mona Lisa odorless mineral spirits, Twinkling h20's to deepen the shade and add glimmer. Delta Acrylic white paint for detail dots I stamped a skull on the little pirates shirt. I also embossed a little bit of gold on the edges of the sentiment. The pirate is popped up on foamy's. The weather here is Wonderful!! tulips are peeking out of the ground. I can hardly wait to see them bloom!! Have a Great Day Friends! and Thank You so much for all your Lovely comments!
