Here Aaaarrrrr Some More Pirates For You!

Happy Friday to you! I hope you were able to join the Virtual Stamping Luau last night (and if you did, you've already seen these cards!) We had such a fun time! These are the two cards I made for the two challenges we had! They both use my favorite new set from The Greeting Farm - Matey!

The first was a monochromatic challenge. I thoroughly admit I cheated! Mine is not-so-monochromatic! But I wasn't up for any prizes and I REALLY wanted red, too! If you read my blog very often, you may have seen my post about our local Ren-fair and the cards I made in honor of the Red, Green, and Blue courts. Well, we also have the Pirates Guild that puts on a Naughty, Bawdy Pirate show at the tavern and they are my favorite! They tend to dress in red, black, and white, so these are in honor of them! The DP on the pirate Ian card is from DCWV, and he is colored with Copics: (this is my first time coloring on ivory paper - Gina K - instead of white and it definitely took the color differently. It also seemed to feather a lot more, but I do like the end result.)

Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20
Shirt: E40,E43
Vest & Headband: R24,R27,R29,R39
Hair & Other Clothes: C3,C5,C7,C9

I used Stampin Up DP for my "Pirate Wench". The sentiment is from the set Best Mates from The Greeting Farm. She is colored with Copic:

Skin: R00,E11,E13,R20
Hair: E21,E25,E27,E29
Clothes: R24,R27,R29,R39, C5,C7,C9, 110
Shadow: C1,C3

Thanks so much for coming to see me today! I hope your weekend is Fabulous!
