Pirate and the Princess..oh but wait she isn't ready yet...


Two of my most special BFF's recently had a pirate and princess party for their little ones...Sadly I was unable to attend...so I wanted to make them something special as they are very amazing little people and they have the most wonderful sense of imagination and playtime...Well obviously they love pretending they are pirates and princess...now here is my pirate gift but as most princess's you will have to wait because she just isn't ready yet...what is a girl to do..one can't just be princess at a moments notice..not like those dirty ole pirate's who knows the last time the brushed their hair and changed their clothes..lol...any how Happy Birthday ..I mean ARRGh!! me matey...Happy Birthday!! ...yo ho ho...She will make an appearance by the end of the weekend ..we hope..
I am going to use this as my entry for another awesome challenge on the splendid stamping blog..http://splendidstamping.blogspot.com/2009/10/farm-fresh-sans-frills.html this link will give you the rules also...this is a no frills challenge...yikes...no ribbons, flowers, or lace ..nothing to girlie..but you know what since I have a son I better learn to create more with out always trying to sneak in a pretty flower or ribbon..lol...
I used The Greeting Farm Stamp of Pirate Ian from the Matey set...which I love...and I stamped and then used copics for the coloring..I stamped and embossed wee jolly rogers on his hat for added effect. They turned out quite well...you can actually see them in the picture...I added a bead which is the boat and I hand stitched the little loopy line and X....
I actually burned the paper nearly started a fire and then added Tim holtz distress ink and then spritzed the paper with water again..lol and crumpled into a ball..then left to dry.
I used pirate foam letters for the name and for the doubloons and key. For the gold on the key and doubloons I used paint and then heated them to make them look old and antique. I used gold rope to hang the sign and some more jolly rogers to finish it off...
Thank you for stopping by....you can see it here at the gallery also and all the other wonderful creations from the talented bunch of The greeting farm rubber stamps...Hey grab a rum and coke on the way out...lol
