ahoy matey

Thanks so much for the birthday wishes!  If you haven't already, be sure to enter my birthday blog candy below.  I'll draw a winner on Friday. :)

Things have been hectic with back to school, but I do have a card to share that I created a while back, but haven't had a chance to post yet.

I created this fun card a while back using the Half Pint Heroes set from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  It's one of my favorite sets from Claire.   There's just something quirky and fun about it.    I wanted a very clean and simple design that really gave the focus of the card to the cute image.

I stamped the image on copic x-press it cardstock with tuxedo black memento ink and colored it with copic markers.  I added some glossy accents to the windows on the sub and set it aside to dry.  While it was drying, I put together the rest of my card.  The patterned papers are from Studio Calico's Heyday paper pad.  I  stamped the finished, colored them, and added some stickles to them.  The seaweed is the Martha Stewart branch punch.  After the image was dry, I cut it out and adhered it with foam adhesive.

Have a great day!
