STAMPlorations Inspiration # 130

Hey everyone!  It's that time again for Inspiration Tuesday, over at STAMPlorations,  We are showcasing our lovely and talented leader, Shery. Her stamp line, Shery Russ Designs, is one of my all time favourite lines.  Artistic and funky, they are a pleasure to create with.  Here's my card....

I made this card for my son to give to his friend for his birthday.  He was having a pirate themed party so I decided a card with a pirate ship was needed!  First, I took a piece of watercolour paper and using my Spectrum Aqua markers and a water brush pen, I created a rainbow-like wash.  Once this dried, I stamped my boat (True North set) and coloured in the hull with a brown pencil crayon.  I paper pieced the sails with white cardstock.  Using a fine tip black marker, I added the crow's nest and flag.  I drew in the suggestion of a skull and crossbones with and white gel pen. Then, I took 3 different shades of blue cardstock and using some scalloped scissors, created my waves in the water and attached it to my card, making sure the bottom edge of my boat was covered.  I matted this all with black cardstock them attached to my white card base.  I stamped the sentiment (Vignette: Chevron and Arrows set) in black.

Well, I hope you pop on over to the main blog and check out what the rest of the DT made.  Leave a comment there and be entered for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the STAMPlorations store!
