I am back with another Magnolia card, this time for Just Magnolia, which are featuring Bev's lovely sketch; and My Time to craft Challenge, which want to see lot of red on our creations.
Well the wonderful sketch I followed has an oval in the middle. Bev, I hope it's alright with you that I played with the shape. Instead I started with a rectangular shape, coloured my gorgeous Jolly Roger Tilda, and distressed the background with Antique Linen. I also used Walnut Stain on the ground, and some Star dust Stickles on some of Tilda's clothes, the skull on the flag and on the ground as well :)
When that step was finished, I burnt the edges with matches, to resemble an antique picture, or part of the pirate's treasure map. If I had more time I would have designed a scroll behind Tilda.. maybe sometime!! ;)
Last step was stamping grunge shapes in the outer edges.. and I was pleased how it turned out.
Click on the picture and then click again to enlarge the image for a better view.
Finally I embellished with two vintage gold coloured buttons, after I cut off the loops of the back. Raffia lace is from Quixotic Paperie, the DP is from BG Indian Summer. I loved the deep reds, black branches and leaves on the edges and intricate designs on this one, it seems that the pirates landed on some deserted island with lost forests.. am I imaginative or what? :))
For the inside I stamped Just for you sentiment. Then I doodles Matey in a "piratey" way.. sorry for the word! :) I decided on that because I had made "Ahoy" rubbed on the image's side.. and I also doodled some lines and crosses as if it was a map the pirates are following. I have a ship or two as well ...lol. Sorry, I'm very playful this weekend :)
