Talk Like a Pirate Day! ...almost

Arrgh! It's almost Talk like a Pirate Day! It's actually tomorrow....but we gals from Bombshell Stamps wanted to start celebratin' a day early! Bring on the grog! Here's what Blog Captain Glittery Katie said on the Bombshell Blog:
Arrrrrr me hearties! Third Mate Katie here to tell ye craft lubbers all 'bout the international celebration of the bestest folk thar be...yes PIRATES cos September 19th be Talk Like Pirate Day !!
As ye can prolly tell it's all about a thinkin', a doin' and most 'portantly a talkin' like a pirate!
We 'ere at Bombshell Stamps do be a LOVIN' our Pirates and all things Piratey!!!!
So 'ere be some projects that we've been a creatin', all inspired by 'Talk Like a Pirate Day'.
I 'ope ye be feelin' proper piratey now and you be joining us in some Pirate Craftin'!!

So what did I make??? A card inspired by an old pirate's map.


Look ma, no colors! I kept it ultra neutral. Which was hard, since I love to use bright colors. I started off by tearing a speckled cream cardstock to fit on to my kraft card. Then I stamped the Pirate from A Pirate's Life, from none other than Bombshell Stamps. I added the sentiment, and inked up my Mini Punchinella stencil from The Crafter's Workshop. Then, I crumpled it up.


I uncrumpled, and began to ink, ink, and ink some more. I stamped out the ship (from the same set) and punched it out. Pop dotted it too, for even more yummy dimension on my card.


I inked the edges of the card, and added a layer of Pirate's Gold embossing powder to the top and bottom of the card.. No, really! That's what it's called! Pretty appropriate, huh? And that's pretty much it. It came together pretty quick. I guess that's what happens when you don't color anything! :) Now be sure to visit the rest of the Bombshells over at the Bombshell Blog. There are some awesome creations over there, and yer sure to be talkin' like 'em scallawags by the time yer through! Now...where did I put me grog?
