Captain Hugh from Mo Manning

Last week, while blog hopping round the internet I saw a pirate card from Paula... which reminded me I had Captain Hugh from Mo Manning's Digital Pencil... so I printed him out.

Finally got around to colouring yesterday and making up into a card.

Captain Hugh

I found a free treasure map (here) and resized and shaped to have it fit a 15cm x 10.5cm.  I cut it out and added some Sahara Sands chalk ink for a bit of definition.   I used a Spellbinder's Label 1 to cut out Hugh and added some blue ink around the edge and some of the chalk ink to the rest of the panel.  I then stamped the sentiment from one of my new Penny Black stamp sets and cut it like a banner.  I added some of the chalk ink as well.   

I really love the way it came together.  I'm going to throw it in the ring at Simon Says Stamp challenge ~ Anything goes....
and as the sentiment is PB (and large) I'm entering it into Penny Black Saturday Challenge. ~ Masculine.

I'm off to SENZ on Friday.... it's the biggest Scrapbook and crafting expo in NZ and it's in Manukau -South Auckland  ( about 40kms from my place)  I've booked into two classes... one in the morning ~ a frame and one in the afternoon ~ Penny Black cards.  Each class is 2hrs long... then a little time to go shopping!!!!!  And I'm hoping to catch up with a few of my new Facebook friends... Paula who owns ScrapFX has a stall and Kimi is over from Australia to help her out!  

Take care

Hello Dawn
I think this is a fantastic card, the background is a Wow for me and you have coloured your pirate in wonderfully.
Have a great time at Senz.

Cutest card! I see you're taking a couple classes. Always fun to get together with like minded people who understand your penchant for paper, scissors, stamps.....

Love the card - the colors are perfect and so is the "banner".
