Beware Pirates!

Used the Beware Pirates stamp set and an old road atlas for this card.
A page from the road atlas was soaked in cold tea overnight and left to dry.  A rectanglular-ish shape was then torn out, it's edges carefully burnt over a match, screwed up, unscrewed and just the middle bit stuck onto a square card blank.  I then rolled the edges a bit.
I stamped 2 of the skull and crossbone stamps using Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler inks.  The Cherry Cobbler one was stamped twice without re-inking so that it was nicely faded, then cut out and stuck on.
All the bits were stuck together and the Beware Pirates stamped in Cherry Cobbler


  1. This is so cool, great card for any little boy.

  2. Great idea for an older boy or teenagers card! Thanks for playing along on SUO Challenge blog.
