Pirate Tilda take two


Hi everyone and another cute pirate Tilda from me today, I'm trying to use these stamps that I've had a for a while but not had time for so far. Tilda is a bit swarthy :D as I stamped her and the barrel background on kraft card and coloured with prisma pencils. I;ve added some shell beads, pearl pens, glitter liner and a doodlebug rub on to decorate. The edges of the scene are sponged with white ink and around of the base of the card in blue chalk ink.

I'm entering into Magnolia Down Under where the theme is an easel card
ABC Challenge with a theme of August
Cute Card Thursday and a theme of Whateva.
The Pink Elephant has a theme of Summer Fun.
All of these challenges have superb inspiration from the designers, I almost forgot I was meant to be entering :D.

Thanks as always for your lovely comments and have a good week.
