Boy oh Boy!

This week's PaperPlay challenge is to make something for a boy/man. So I used my Pirate stamp from Stampin' Bella and some pirate themed papers given to me by Karen. I coloured the image with pencils and distressed the background with Antique Linen. Then stamped Happy Birthday underneath the image. I used a grungeboard skull and painted it with Picket Fence crackle paint. I was a little bit pushed for time so I dried off the paint real fast with my heat tool. Then I took a little piece of foam and used it to distess the skull with black soot ink. I cut out 2 coins from the dp, stuck them down and placed the skull just over them. Then I stuck down some real coins :), and gems (treasure!!!!)

I'm entering this into the Simon Says Challenge, as I used Dawny's sketch :)

I also followed the sketch in to the inside. It's quite plain, no stamping.

Ingredients: (all linked items are available on Pezadoodle Designs ) Papers: Pirate themed -gift from Karen & PM cardstock Image: Stampin' Bella Skull: Grungeboard Distress inks, crackle paint, pencils Coins from my change jar, lol.
