Pirate Ship

Since I have a two year old son and several nephews, I just had to have the Ahoy Matey stamp set!

I stamped it on watercolor paper using black Stazon ink. Then I used my watercolor crayons (a favorite toy) and my aqua painter to color it in. When I was finished, I sponged Creamy Caramel ink on the edges and mounted it on Basic Black. The card base is Tempting Turquoise and the strip going across is Copper. I also inked just the word "ARRR" with a marker and added that to the corner.

This color combo is so striking and this card pattern is so quick and easy.
