Macabre Monday Pirate's Booty
This week for Macabre Monday at HDH It's a call for Pirate's Booty. Create a dark, Gothic or Halloween based art piece with a pirate's theme. Our sponsor this week is our very own Minion Teri from Delicious Doodles and I've used several of her fab pirate digis to create my easel card. The background is Treasure Map inked heavily with Distress. Then I've cropped, minimized and merged Skull and Crossbones2 to fit on the sail of the Pirate Ship Silhouette which I fussy cut and popped on top of the map. The skull and bones die cut is from the Cricut October 31st cartridge.
The fabulous wench is Pirate Polly,colored with Copics and out for blood. I take that back, she's NOBODY'S wench, but I'll bet she's got quite the booty. The side view gives you a better view of the layers which I hope are enough to qualify for this week's Delicious Doodles Loads of Layers Challenge. The sentiment is computer generated and cut and layered with Nesties Labels Two. The Minions have been suffering from a number of horrible atrocities this week but there is still plenty of inspiration at Haunted Design House. Just wait 'til you see Teri's new Pirate Zombie releasing on Wretched Wednesday (and you'll bet Greepy Glo will be showcasing it to it's fullest) and don't forget there's still time to get your creep on and apply to enter the wicked realm of the Minions of Haunted Design House.
I'm so happy you came to visit and share in my crafting adventures. I hope in doing so you are inspired. I would love to hear your comments and I'm happy to share my designs for your personal use, but please do not submit them for contests or publication or copy them for any commercial venture.
I've always loved crafting, even as a little girl. My inspiration was my Daddy who was a wonderful artist and made beautiful 3-D Valentines for my teachers in grade school. Although I love all kinds of crafts I haven't had a real focus since abandoning counted cross stitch back in the 80's. Until I got my Cricut in 2008, that is. I've since expanded my horizons and found a new love in coloring both rubber and digi stamps with my Copics. Now I'm a blissfully retired card maker and papercrafter married 38 years to a wonderful guy with two furbabies, Goliath and Jezebel. Everyday I look forward to dreaming up designs and playing in my craft room. I invite you to share in my adventures.
