Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - 5 July 2013 - For the Men/Boys

Today is a special day at Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge Blog as the new Design Team members start as part of the Design Team this week.  Please pop on over to the Challenge Blog to give them a good welcome.

There has been a change in the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge.  We have decided to move from a monthly challenge to a fortnightly challenge.  We have split the Design Team into two teams.  Sue is the Team Leader for Team B and I am the Team Leader for Team A.

The first challenge for the new Design Team is called "for the men/boys" and it is time for Team A to show you their cards/creations.
For my card I have used two Sweet Pea Stamps images - rubber stamp (Sheet 8, Plate 217) for the treasure map and Joanne Schempp's Ancient One (this stamp is available as a single stamp but is also available as a Mini Pirate Set and includes the pirate, skull and black pearl or as a plate (sheet 6, plate 163) and includes a large pirate image, small pirate image, large black pearl, small black pearl, large skull and small skull).  I have cut around the treasure map and then used various colours of brown/yellow Pan Pastels to colour it.  I have then added some gold Imagination Crafts Sparkle Medium Gold Shine around the edge (and yes I did dip my finger in the pot and get a goldfinger!!!) and added some flakes of frantage on top before it dried to adhere it to the card.  The pirate I have coloured in with Promarkers/Flexmarkers and then fussy cut around him.  

I decided not to use any patterned papers but instead used some rustic corrugated card I've had for years and years.  I wound some twine around.  The card has been finished off with some wooden button hearts, anchor charm, twine tied into a bow, crab charm and a Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment.
