International Talk Like a Pirate Day...with Treasure!

Yarrrr mateys! The lovely wenches over at Mountain Plains Crafters have served up some grog-a-licious pirate cards and layouts ta tickle yer fancy...and some of dem have buried treasure on their blogs! Be sure to check out everyone's creations, including mine:

Ahoy there, matey!
A pirate ship sailing the open seas! This is a fun mix of Distress Inks and papers to pull this all together. The waves were made with Broken China, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Faded Jeans all layered onto watercolor paper. I wanted the texture and the stiffness when I tore it to get my white waves. The sunset/sunrise is a mix of Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade and Ripe Persimmon onto my favorite 100# white cardstock. Some Tombow super adhesive stuck the waves down to the sky after everything dried. I also added some Rock Candy Stickles to the white caps, but it so didn't photograph. Trust me when I say it adds some watery sparkle to the waves.

The pirate ship is from the Sweet Stamp Shop Ahoy! set and is too cool. I did a bit of coloring with my Spectrum Noir markers, added some Glossy Accents to the Jolly Roger and then just popped it up with some foam tape. The sentiment is from the same set and got a touch of color and Glossy Accents as well.

And like that, this ship set sail - yaaaarrrr!
