Ahoy! Pirate Card - Magnolia

This is one of the cards published in the Fairy tale Spring Edition 2010 of Magnolia Ink. I know that is a long time ago....but I recently realized I haven't posted it on my blog.

Here is a list of the stamps I've used on this card...All from Magnolia of course!! LZ09 Ocean Bakground - VA07 Sjorovar banner2 - VA07 Edwin som pirat - VA07 Edwins Doskalle - S007 Skepp - HV08 Stock.

The images are colored with copics (base only), prismacolor pencils (oms) and h20's to deepen the shade.

The ocean background stamp is simply over stamped with the pirate ship. The flowers, leaves and cord are from Magnolia. Edwin is glued to the log...and attached to the front corner with foam dimensionals.

The weather here has been frightfully cold to say the least!! It is suppose to warm up at the end of the week...I'm keeping my fingers crossed. We have an unreal amount of snow as well...with more in the forecast..as it is...no one knows where to put it anymore...lol.

Have a Great Day Everyone!!..Keep Warm!!..and Thank you so much for your Lovely comments!!
