I just Love this set. This little fellow took a LONG LONG time to grow on me! You see at first I was NOT fond of his little stick legs and bean seed feet!!! Then of course after seeing many many many wonderful samples, the attraction grew. What a Fun set this is.

I scored the leftover patterned paper from my friend Joan. She was making an adorable Pirate album for her Granddaughter and I was totally drooling over the awesome designer paper ( I think it hails from Rusty Pickle!) So it has been kicking around in my scrap bin, waiting for a round tuit! Today I got around to it, when the SCS for the day was to make a card using strips of scrap paper. This was just the little push that I needed to get working on the card. The little Pirate was coloured using my watercolouring with markers technique (check the older posts for my tutorial). The Bird was stamped onto the background for the purpose of not having to go through the cumbersome task of cutting out his skinny little parrot feet. A second image was stamped and coloured, trimmed and placed on top of the original image with a dimensional. Stamps: Ahoy Matey and It's your Birthday from Stampin' Up!!!!!!
