Ahoy there Matey!

The challenge over at Crafty Sentiments this week is use CHIPBOARD OR CARDBOARD on your project. I decided to go with a pirate theme this week. I cut the scull and bones using cardboard and a sizzix die and aged it with distress inks. The sentiment was a freebie from Simon Says blog along with the stripy papers. The scull papers I got via a google
freebie. The image is SAILOR BOY available here. I coloured him with promarkers and then aged the edges with distress inks.
I am entering this into the following challenges:
1. Everybody Art - pirates
2. Totally PaperCrafts - by the sea
3. One Stop Crafts - summer fun
4. Saturday Challenge - it's a man's world
5. cards for men - off on an adventure
