Just Magnolia DT - Bev's sketch meets Colour Create Challenge

WOW!!! We had a huge amount of entries last week at Just Magnolia challenge! Thank you all so much! This week we have a gorgeous sketch by Bev, thanks hun, I loved using it!! Perfect to ink up this little pirate Edwin I managed to get at the NEC. The rest were sold out! I have used the stunning colour challenge at Colour Create Challenge of Burnt Orange, Black and Cream - absolutely gorgeous don't you think!? The burnt orange paper is K&Co and the black and cream stripe was a scrap left over from the Gorjuss Girls sets I've been showing you this week. I distressed them with Walnut stain distress ink and then stickled them.

Edwin is coloured with distress inks. I cut him out so that I could sit him in front of the stormy sky and sea background I created with weathered wood and faded jeans distress inks.

As I was distinctly lacking in pirate like accessories I have made the pirate flag myself by drawing the skull and crossbones with a white gel pen onto the black cardstock. The border has been die cut with Tim Holtz scrollwork die. The ribbon and brads are from the Hobby House.

The map was also drawn by me onto the cream cardstock and then I aged it with vintage photo distress ink. The cute key charm is from Whiff of Joy! Now Edwin just needs to find the treasure chest LOL!

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Just Magnolia! Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the DT's stunning creations! x
