Shiver Me Timbers

Hello.  Welcome.  It's Birthday April!!  Needed another small man card, so went with the oh so cool Pirate Dan from Kadoodle stamps. 

Pirate Dan was stamped with black Archival ink, fussy cut and coloured with Promarkers.  I used Worn Lipstick distress for his skin and gold pilot marker for his belt buckle and earring.  The background was actually an exercise in brush cleaning!  I just grabbed a scrap of card and brushed til no more dark blue acrylic paint came out, then washed the brush.  Then I looked at the card scrap and decided it was too pretty to throw away.  With the addition of a scrap of ripped yellow card and Die-Versions Beach Hut dies cut from black card it made a perfect beach scene for Pirate Dan.  The sentiment is from Rubber Dance Happy Birthday set stamped with Dare2BArtzy Midnight Blue dye ink.  I also used this ink to edge the card base and layer.    

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
