TGIF! I'm soooo ready for the weekend. For today's card I have a Moose Pirate. Riley Moose to be specific and you can find him at Hanna Stamps. I made this card for the Hanna Stamps Guest Designer call. They are looking for 6 designers to serve 2 month terms beginning in September. If you ever wanted to be part of a deign team this is a great opportunity. I really must have lost my head...LOL!...because I keep forgetting to grab my detail information so that is my priority this weekend. Update the past three posts with the details. On this card I used the 2Sketches4You Top 30 Sketch as the inspiration. I think that layout is really cool. I did however move the sentiment down because mine was so big but I HAD to use it. The sentiment is from the Doodle Factory Tropics collection. One of the things that I love to do with my sentiments is to give it a cliped tail either one side or both. If I do both most of the time I will make the center pop-up a little. I will cut the sentiment the use my bone folder to make the setiment curl a bit and then anchor either side with glue dots. Kind of like when you curl ribbon with scissors. I just like the effect it gives. I colored Riley up with copics and sponged the edges with tea dye distress ink. Because of the rule that black pants and brown shoes are not suppose to go together I added the blue color to kind of marry the two together and add a little pop. Of those yellow pants on Riley add quite the pop but I had to tie in the parrot beak somehow. I drew the lines for the shirt and the pant leg and waistband. Oh and every Pirate needs treasure so I added pearls in the scallops. I hope you enjoy the card and your weekend.
