Yarr a Treasure!

Looking for my Freshly Made Sketches and Color Throwdown post?  Click HERE!

Several days ago I checked out the challenge at Sunday Stamps and said to myself  "oooh."  The blue with the yellow and orange spoke to me and at that time I had no idea what I wanted to do with those colors, I just knew that I wanted to do something.  Well fast forward a week or so and I had an epiphany involving a treasure chest, some colorful sequins and the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch.

Jack Sparrow notwithstanding, I'm a huge pirate fan.  I know the historical figures were probably bad people who most likely smelled, but boy do they conjure up some fun images!  Take this treasure chest for instance. Who wouldn't love to have that in their closet?  This is just another fun image in the Black Beard's Loot stamp set.  

And of course by now you've realized that I turned the sketch upside down, but I think that's ok.  At least I hope it is!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps:  Black Beard's Loot (The Alley Way Stamps)
