Passion For Promarkers - a pirate's life for me!

Our challenge for this week at Passion For Promarkers is a fun one - a pirate's life for me!  We're sponsored by DigiStamp Boutique and the fab prize is 6 digis of the winner's choice.



I'd planned to go with more 'piratey' colours originally, but I had papers in front of me and the inspiration wouldn't come... so after a rummage through my papers I came up with this instead.

I've used the super cute Pirate Sammy from DigiStamp Boutique, and he's coloured with promarkers, flexmarkers and koh-i-noor pencils.  The papers are Making Memories, with core'dinations cardstock.  Zig zag border cut with a MS punch, star cut with a sizzix die, button, ribbon and twine from my stash.  The sentiment was made using a Paper Smooches alphabet set and some little alphabet stamps I've had for ages and never really used - they're a bit soft and tricky to use.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

I'm not sure what we're doing today... I'd planned a day in the park and lunch at KFC for a bit of a treat lol.  But it's bloomin' raining so the park's probably out for today - typical!
