Daring Do and Pirate Adventures!

Over at the Lollipop Ladies we have a challenge #72 running for the month over July (normally they are each fortnight) and this month the theme is Pirates and the twist is WATER.

This is the inspirational photo

Here is my Tri-fold card using the theme of Pirates:

digi Pirate Johnny - by Meljen - coloured with Copics and Stickles added; frame die cut and ink sponged around

a Bugaboo Digi, with treasure chest too, but the map was on a website about Pirate sayings, printed off and fussy-cut out. Stickles on the sabre!

This is from Meljen too. I sponged ink across top of water and added a sky with the sun out!

The flag is from my die cut stash. The background papers from the stack of left-over papers laying on the table. 

The poem is from the website on Pirate sayings, printed off and ink sponged around. 

I used a few dimentionals to lift up the boy pirate and the sun. My rock is my own drawing! All coloured in with Copics. 

The sentiments come from a freebie stamp off a Craft magazine. The card is SU Tempting Turquoise and the DP with the ships is from SU as well. 

It is kinda cute! Great for a little boy's birthday! There is a story there too if you can read it.

Please enter this challenge - at the moment there is only one entry! 

I will enter this in the following challenges:
Creative Corner: Anything Goes
Delicious Doodles: Create some scenery - yep, underwater and above water!
Just Add Ink: Water! Yes, behind Pirate Johnny and in the sea!
Southern Girls:  No Spoolin! Nope, none here....
