Arrr Me Hearties!!

Did you celebrate Talk Like A Pirate Day?!  Well I did, and had a ball.  Because I work in childcare I'm lucky enough to celebrate all sorts of dress up and colour days.  This would have to be one of my favourites.  I had my hat, white shirt, brown vest and black pants, then there were the shackles, a flying jolly roger and a cardboard ship.  Tons of fun.  Sophia got to dress up too and was the cutest little pirate you ever did see!!

I created this card with some help from Cardabilities, a great sketch and motivational site, and a digi image from Doodle Pantry - Piratey Ship.  This image is precoloured, and I added some gloss to the waves and top flags and windows.  It's a little hard to see, but there is also some black bling dots in the circular cannon holes.

I used some light pink/red and white striped washi tape to make the frill around the raised pirate image.  It reminds me of pirates all that striping.  I also used some red striped twine to wrap around my card.

If you want to know how to create the frill all you have to do is draw a light pencil line around the circle image in the middle, then carefully start to pleat your washi tape and stick it down and you work your way around the circle.  I placed the pencil line in the middle of the pleated washi tape as I created the circle.

Oh and here is my digi layou that I created for Pirate's Day:
