Arrr Matey

So today Sarah Hurley is releasing a new set of digi stamps…and it’s all about the Pirates! These stamps are colored and plain for those that like to feel like a kid again and color your own. So the Design Team was asked to come up with some projects highlighting the new line (which by the way you can find here).  Now normally, I’m not really the type of person to create something digitally and then just print it off.  I usually like to get my hands dirty, so I thought I would blend the two.  I took some of the images and put a scene together that I would then make into an invitation.  All the images on this are found in the new collection.  I then printed it out onto some Kraft cardstock and then just proceeded to distress it…I ripped first then went over it with the distressing tool, and then I inked it with my ever loving Tim Holtz distress inks in Old Paper and Walnut Stain.  I love how it turned out!!  All the printing I did using a font on my computer.    I hope you like it too and make sure you stop by the blog and check out what the rest of the DT came up with ….fabulous!

I entered this into the following challenges:

Tiddly Inks: Kraft with me

Oh La La Creations: It’s a man thing…Okay a 6yr old is a little man;)

Paper Playtime: Anything Goes with a Digi

Stamping Vacation: Very Vintage Torn Edges ( I know it’s not a card but I thought I’d give it a shot)

There She Goes: Get Krafty

Aly’s Sunday Challenge: Anything Goes
