Freshly Made Sketches - Challenge #291

Hi there crafty friends,
I have a really quick post to share a card I created for Freshly Made Sketches (Sketch by Jen B.)

I took creative liberty for the top panel and used Lawn Fawn's Speech Bubble ~


I started by stamping the sentiment on the speech bubble and set it aside. I embossed the panel with the Waves Stencil, then inked the Porthole with Peacock Feathers and added transparent embossing paste to add texture. This stamp set is from MFT's latest release, and the images are adorable :)
Here is a close-up of the embossed panel:


Lastly, I used a silver gelly roll pen for the hat, sash and sword and glossy accents to the eye patch; I was also lucky enough to find some old brads from my scrapbooking days to add to the porthole. And, that was it ~

Wishing you a wonderful crafty week ahead...Thanks so much for stopping by,

I love how you've used the giant speech bubble as the top panel - and those sweet prates are on my wishlist!

How fabulous Barb! Great idea to use the speech bubble as part of the sketch but I also love how you have added colour to the portion of embossing through the port hole, clever clever and fun ideas!

This is adorable, Barb! Great texture and the dotted elements on the pirate are too cute! I just got those pirates on Friday and took a bit of time on the weekend to color a few of them up. Now to create a card with them. Great to see you at FMS!
