Avast,me hearties?

At Craft Your Passion Challenges this week we want you to Text It.Which means we’d love to see you use text on your creations. We’re sponsored by the fabulous Lauretta’s Digital Stamps and CoCoDingo.

.Please check out how to play along and be in the chance for a prize on the challenge blog.Don’t forget to take a look at The DT and GDT’s wonderful work while you’re there!

For my card I’ve used Little Pirate Boy from Lauretta’s Digital Stamps.He’s been coloured with ProMarkers and although it doesn’t show too well I added some Glaze Pen to the sword and his buttons.I’d had my eye on this paper pad for a while and just had to snap it up when it was half price at my local craft warehouse – and it was the last one!!Again it doesn’t show but the pirate ship comes ready glossed.I distressed all the edges and added some of my fave waxed cord and a charm.Rather than hunt through my stamps or print one off the computer I decided to cut out a greeting from a piece of the backing paper.
