Cap'n Sprinkle

Happy Friday! Today's the release of three new sets from The Cat's Pajamas. My all-time favorite pirate stamps have been combined into one fantastically clear set, and then there's a Swanky Halloween set and a Christmas fairy set. And for a limited time you can get all three sets (a $54 value) in the Kitty Kat Pack for $39! So what are you waiting for? That's a big ole' whopping good deal! The money you're saving could buy you a whole other $15 set! Woohoo!

My card today features the Arrgh! Piratey! set, as well as my favorite feline (in stamp form), Big Sprinkle, from the It's a Mod, Mod World set.
I started by stamping the Swabby Hat in Versafine Onyx Black, masking off just the bottom part of the hat and stamping Big Sprinkle. Next I shaded and colored with Copic markers and added a little ground for Cap'n Sprinkle to be sitting on. I doodled in a frame and matted on black. The Skull & Swords is stamped in Versafine Crimson Red and punched out with circle punches. I shaded with a gray marker, and then added some crystal effects to the image for a glossy look and a black dotted border. The background for the card was made by aligning the two skull stamps on an acrylic block and stamping repeatedly across the grey cardstock in Versafine Smokey Gray. Next I cut a strip of red, inked the edges with Smokey Gray and pierced holes along the top and bottom edges. The scallop border is made from a Long Rectangles Nestabilities shape that I removed some of the middle section from, to be the right width for my panel.I finished off by adding some more gray sponging on the gray layer and adding the Arr! Have a Swashbucklin' Day sentiment in the corner.

Hope y'all have a swashbucklin' good day! I'm hectically running around trying to get all the last minute details taken care of before we leave for our weeklong vacation. Woohoo! Hopefully I'll find a little time to schedule some posts before I leave so you've got something to look at for the next week. ;) I'll be back tomorrow for the Our Creative Corner challenge before we head out of dodge!
