Pirate cards

Hello everybody.
Here are two cards I finished last night. Both are "pirate" cards. I really like using warm muted colours on my projects, and love distressing the paper as much as I can. I used Copics to colour the images, Karen Foster charms, Glitz letter stickers, Sassafrass Lass papers, Bazzill cardstock, and few chipboard shapes I think they were Riff Raff chipboard shapes.

I am entering Edwin for "Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge" challenge. He was somewhat inspired by their sketch.

I had fun colouring Tilda here, and I am entering her for Bunny Zoe's craft challenge.


  1. They are both fabulous Martina and I love your colouring, design and distressed edges. The colour is really striking. Hugs, Nikki x

  2. These are great. On the top one, is that design down the left side folded paper?

  3. thank you!
    Yes Nancy, it's was cut and then folded.
