She's Got a Lot of Booty!

Hello! It's good to be back! It feels like I have been gone forever...I did get a lot of organizing done, although there is a lot more that needs done. Spring break is over, though, so I'll have to just do the little bits that I can for now. Maybe when summer vacation starts I can tackle some more big projects.

I have made a card today using Caribbean Treasure from ching-chou kuik's Fantasy Art Collection (sheet 10, plate 36). I saw her in my head as a dark skinned beauty ruling the seas with her band of pirate henchmen! The treasure chest was especially fun to play with. I used a combination of liquid pearls and different colored stickles for the treasure. I think next time I will add a few seed beads to the mix as well.

The Details:
Stamp: Carribean Treasure - ching-chou kuik's Fantasy Art Collection (sheet 10, plate 36) Sweeet Pea Stamps
Paper: Creative Imagination, Chocolate Chip (SU), White (Paper Trey Ink)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Walnut Distress Ink
Skin: E25,E27,E29,R22
Hair: C5,C7,C9,110
Clothes: YG03 w/Rv00 over it, YG95,YG97,YG99,B32,B34,B39
Background: B32,W0,W1,W3,W5
Treasure Chest: E74,E77,E79, Y21,Y26,Y28
Misc: Stickles - (Golden Rod, Burgundy, Lime Green), Scallop Border Punch (SU), Ribbon (SU), Esspresso Dimensional Pearls, Martha Stewart Skull and Crossbones punch.

I hope your day is magical!
