Pirate card for WSC505

Cute pirate card created for WSC505 at the MFT Blog.

I’ts time for a new Weekly Sketch Challenge (WSC505) at the MFT Blog and I’m popping by to inspire you with a cute pirate card.

First, let’s have a look at the sketch… it’s perfectly symmetrical with two layered 3.5″ squares and a banner. It couldn’t be any easier to recreate!

Ever since the BB Party Like a Pirate stamp set was re-launched in the August Vault Release, I was dying to use it. Here was the perfect opportunity!

I started with the map and used Milk Chocolate Premium Dye Ink to stamp the two images on a 3.5″ x 3.5 (8,8cm x 8cm) piece of Kraft Card Stock. Then I distressed it with some ink blending and a pair of scissors. I finished by adding drops of Wild Cherry Premium Dye Ink.

I followed the sketch for WSC505 almost to a tee… the only thing that I changed was the placement of the Heavyweight Translucent Vellum banner. It would have covered the boy’s neck and it didn’t look good, so I lowered it just a bit.

I asked my son for a couple of Playmobil gold coins, but he didn’t want to give them to me, so I used golden enamel dots to finish my pirate card. That’s all from me for today… I hope you join us at the MFT Blog for this fun challenge. Remember, there is a $50 gift voucher to the MFT Store at stake!


Before you go, you might want to have a look at THIS other pirate card, that I made a couple of years ago for the “Coloring Virtuoso” category of the 2018 Card Design Superstar challenge. It seems like ages ago! ^_^
