I is for Inspire

Hi and welcome back.


Just a quick post to tell you about our new challenge at ABC Challenges for the next two weeks.


Our theme is "I for Inspire Us" and our fabulous sponsor is The Paper Shelter.


I have used a super cute image called "Arr" from The Paper Shelter and the image has been coloured in with Copic Markers.



This cute image is a little boy dressed up as Pirate so after colouring him in, I decided he needed his own ship to sail.


So I did a rough drawing of a ship on Naturals Ivory cardstock and cut it out.  Then layered some paper over the bottom, created a mast and added the sail.


I also added some other paper, a sea gull from Scrapmatts CB1221 Nautical Designs was daubered with some Crumb Cake ink , a few pearls and scalloped eyelet punched border.


The papers used were Authentique Seasons Collective “Summer One” #SEA009 and Graphic 45 By the Sea Collection “My Anchor #4500903”. 




Here is my card:

The lace is the Sahara Sand 7/8” Lace Trim and the sentiment is from the A Dozen Thoughts stamp set which has been stamped in Midnight Muse (retired) and punched out with a small Oval Punch (retired).


Here is a close up of the image:

The Copic Markers used were:

Hair: E57, 55, 53, 50

Skin: E11, 0000, 000, 00, R21, 30

Sword: E44, 43, 42, 40

Clothes: B0000, 00, 01, 4, 2, Y15, 13, 11, 00


Isn’t he the sweetest and he looks like he is having a fabulous time!
