Yo Ho Ho!



It seems everyone is into pirates now, so here\'s a birthday card made for a young boy. The Obscure range seems to be perfect for all kinds of masculine cards. All materials used are the Obscure range, except the coin charm (origin unknown) and Roxie stamps from Love Elsie. I have cut a hat and attached a chipboard skull with bones that have been painted with buff and gold acrylics. The palm tree is a ribbon (attached with the double tape) and leaves cut out of paper. There are several other chipboard elements that were painted and attached to the card. The map was rolled and a ribbon attached to it, the edges inked to get a distressed look.
