Pirate Turtle Challenge#52 @TSC

Avast me hearties! I'm here to share the card I made for Challenge #52-Red and Green plus a Ribbon for Tammy's Scrapin' Corner. Our Sponsor this week is QKR Stampede. I used their fabulous digi called Pirate Turtle.

I had so many ideas for this project but a 6x6 card just wasn't a big enough canvas for what I had envisioned. I did manage to add as much detail as I could though. The beach/waves border was something I made years ago for a scrapbooking page that never got made. It was a 12" border that I cut it in half to fit on the card. The little map was cut from a sheet of 7 Gypsies paper. I crumpled it up and burnt the edges. I chose the other papers from a Glitz Joyeux Noel 6x6 paper pack. That's a very versatile pack of paper. I added tiny shells and "beach sand" to the glass bottle. The pirate themed buttons were perfect except for the color of the pirate ship. It was originally blue but I used acrylic paint to transform it. I heat embossed the papers and port hole with UTEE to give it a watery look.
The sentiment is from Kraftin Kimmie's Pirate Sayings.

This was such a fun image to color and I was thrilled with how amphibian looking the turtle's skin colored up.
Hope you join us for another great week at Tammy's Scrapin' Corner. Looking forward to seeing your creations. If you'd like the chance to be a guest designer just add GDT after your name.  Thanks for visiting matey...Argggh!
