A Sassy Pirate

I pulled out my Prismacolors and Mona Lisa OMS for a change. Wow, I thought I needed to practice my Copic colouring, but I *really* need to practice with my Prismacolors! My 7-year old could give me a run for my money with her Walmart pencil crayons...

I was just having a bit of fun with some of my Nestabilities and coloured Kraftin' Kimmie's "Cutthroat Lizzie" to match. Some of the Nesties are then popped up with dimensional foam stickers. The embossed layer is a Stampin' Up embossing folder - "Square Lattice" and is quickly becoming a favourite for me, and that little belt buckle is from a really old Quickutz die.

I tried a faint gray cloudy day for the background, but apparently, it's soooooo gray that it doesn't even show up :)

Don't look at the colouring too closely (yes, she has a bit of lipstick "bleed", LOL!).

Hope you all had a great weekend. We "bunked in" at my sister's garage sale and managed to get rid of a little "junk" from the garage and make a bit of cash in the process. At this rate, I am determined to have a parking spot in the garage come winter!

Hi Lesley,

I couldn't find a comment form, but I wanted to thank you for your hint on how to get icing in a bottle at Bake @ 350. That was just too easy for me to think of! Thank you again.

(cute cards by the way1)
