ARGGGHHH!!!

IT’S FRIDAY!!! I think you might know what that means by now. But just in case you don’t I’ll refresh your memory. We’re off with FFC & FWF, which means nothing but FUN, FUN, FUN!!!

This Friday, Sherry has challenged us to make a masculine card and she said that because it was Lincoln’s birthday to make it a birthday card. However I don’t celebrate birthdays. So I took a few liberties, one) she didn’t say how old the masculine person had to be (hehe) and two) she didn’t say it had to be blatantly a birthday card. MWAHAHAHAHAHA!! Sorry, I think I’m getting slap happy for being up a little too late and sniffing sharpies (I’ll save that one for a later post). Onward to the card…

I did a few different things on this bad boy. This is the same piece of paper that I used to make the flower behind the Izzy card from the other day. I distressed the edges, sprayed it with water, rubbed it down with ink, crumpled it up & then zapped it with my heat gun. I think it turned out pretty cool looking. I then stamped it with the map stamp and then hit it with the distress stickles on the X spot to make sure it really stood out.

I also had cut some curves on a scrap piece of paper, used my Tim Holtz sponger with Weathered Wood & Broken China to make my waves on the bottom of my PTI Kraft paper. I then took a glitter pen along the edges of the waves to accentuate them.

I stamped & colored the pirate ship on some Prism paper.

Ink: Memento – Rich Cocoa & Tuxedo Black, Distress Ink – Weathered Wood, Old Paper, Broken China
