Card for a Boy

Well this was a "get messy" card.  I started off with using a yellow and brown Pan Pastel through a compass mask.  I highlighted the N, S, E and W with a fine liner.  I then used use a Tim Holtz harlequin stamp, Tim Holtz compass stamp and a Stamp Addicts dotty stamp to add some dimension to the backing paper.  I then made a pretend map by tear/scrunching a piece of paper, stamping with the dotty stamp and then adding colour with a brown Pan Pastel and inking the edges with a sepia Versafine ink pad.  The image I have used is called "Zombie Pirate" - all I will say is that I'd not want to meet him!!!  I have coloured the image with Promarkers and fussy cut.  The card has been finished off with an anchor and ships wheel charm which have been attached to the card with some extra long Tim Holtz brads.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Stamp with Fun - Brown
Passion for Promarkers - Boys and their toys - well what boys don't like to play at being pirates???

Hi Kym. Thanks for the mail. Yes I noticed the difference when I commented on this lovely card - much much quicker. Sorry to have commented on the widgets but beforehand it was taking ages to load - so much so that you really felt like giving up. Take care. M.L.
