Pirate Birthday - In2Stamps DT Card

Hi Everyone

Here’s my second DT card for In2Stamps.  This time I’ve used the “Pirate B-Day Party” stamp. This is a wonderful stamp and perfect when making cards for boys, which is something that I struggle with sometimes.

Here’s my card:

I stamped the image using Black Memento ink onto some bright white card stock and coloured it using my Copic Markers. I trimmed it using deckle edge scissors and then distressed the edge and inked it using some Gold Brilliance ink.

I stamped a script stamp using the same Gold Brilliance ink and then trimmed this with my deckle edge scissors.
I cut two circles, one black and one patterned, using large circle Nesties and distressed the edge of the patterned circle, again using some Gold Brilliance ink. I then mounted this onto the black circle.
I arranged all of these on my card and used a few items from my stash as embellishments.


Stamp: Pirate B-Day Party
Ink: Black Memento and Gold Brilliance
Colouring Medium: Copic Markers
Papers: Scenic Route “Surprise” range – Rainbow Road and Young Street
Card: From my stash
Tools: Deckle Edge Scissors, Large Circle Nesties, Ellison Big Shot, Crop-a-Dile Big Bite
Embellishments: We R Memory Keepers Designer Gromlet, Papermania Black Adhesive Gems and black ribbon from my stash
