Ahoy Matey!

Wednesday, July 3, 2013

I consider it very fortunate that this week the Cupcake Inspiration challenge is about pirates!  This is fortunate because The Alley Way Stamps just released a couple of pirate inspired stamps sets and I am in love with them!  And I also found a new sketch challenge to play along with called Feeling Sketchy.  They had this awesome sketch that I wanted to try.

The awesome pirate and his jug of rum are from Land Ho and the fun sentiment is from Black Beard's Loot.  Once I started to assemble my card I realized that the circle would look really good as a starburst.  The other day I was looking at a starburst die and didn't buy it (for which I am now kicking myself) so I had to create my own.  I took a circle of Summer Starfruit card stock and cut it into slices then rearranged it with spaces between the slices.  Not exactly the look I was going for, but it will have to do!

Thanks for stopping by!
