Time to walk the plank........

......my hearties!
This little piratical offering is my second offering for the Country View Challenges September Nautical challenge. Think lots of little boys and probably quite a few little girls have played at being pirates and these two seem to be dreaming of high seas and adventure!

A real mix of stamps here! Started off by stamping the boys from Artistic Outposts 'Huck Finn' plate and the boat which is a Sheena Douglass stamp, then painted these with Distress Inks.....

Then stamped some wording from the Huck Finn plate, blended on some blue distress for the background taking it over the images in place to anchor (no pun intended!!!)them to the background.

For the pirates flag I stamped the giant skull from Oxford Impressions Danse Macabre set and then drew in the crossed bones with a black fineliner.

Then I coloured the background in with some Black Soot distress ink. To join the two bits together I punched some holes with my crop-a-dile and tied them together with some thin black hemp cord.

There's still time to pop over and join in the challenge, so why not join in the fun :)
