Today I came out with a clean and simple design featuring another adorable Francois (Pirate Cat in Boat) stamp from It’s A Pirate’s Life collection. This time I switched to Neenah Solar White paper and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. To start, I stamped Francois (Pirate Cat in Boat), one of the flags from Sail & Flags set, the palm tree from Tropical Island background stamp and a bottle with a message from Pirate Possessions set. I colored all the elements with copic markers and then fussy cut with my sharp small scissors, leaving a little white edge around.
An extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) was created from the same Neenah Solar White paper. I die cut a square mask from a masking paper using Newton’s Nook Designs Frames Squared Die Set, applied the negative part of the mask directly on the card base to help me ink inside the light blue sky using Tumbled Glass Distress ink and the blending brush. I also added two rows of waves, inking them from the edge of Newton’s Nook Designs Waves & Splashes Stencil using Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink. At this point I removed the mask and simply stamped the matching sentiment from Pirate-ments Set directly on the card front. Finally I popped the colored elements on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look and finished with a few clear sparkling sequins.
In case you’re interested, I’m leaving you all the exact numbers of copic markers used here: cat Y31-YR24-YR27; flag RV13-RV19-RV21-RV25; hat B0000-B21-B24-B26-B69; fish Y00-Y11-Y13; palm E30-E31-E33-E35 plus G20-YG11; T0-T1.
Hope you like this cute card and new amazing stamps from the Purple Onion Designs’ It’s A Pirate Life Collection!
