Beate Weekend Sketch #61

When I first looked at Beate's Sketch for this week and decided which stamp set I wanted to use, my original thought was to make the focal circle the image you would see through a telescope. In this case, "land ho. . .there's a pirate a'shore." I'm not quite sure my original idea made it to paper, though! LOL For the partial circle in the corner, I used the same black cardstock as for the background, but used the Swirls Cuttlebug folder on it giving the illusion of "waves". I used the pirate cupcake from the Trick or Sweet set from Taylored Expressions. I thought it would be cute to add some scruffiness (or jimmies) to the cupcake. For a finishing touch, I laced some black ribbon along the right edge of the card. Make sure you stop by to see what Beate, Cambria, Jenn, Laurie, Lori, MaryJo and Sharon have come up with for this sketch. I'm SURE they'll all be fabulous! Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Trick or Sweet (Taylored Expressions); Paper- Basic Black (SU), Pure Poppy (PTI), white (Georgia-Pacific), gray (DCWV); Ink- Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko), Whisper White Craft (SU); Accessories- Copic markers, black satin ribbon (May Arts), Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Swirls Cuttlebug folder (Provocraft), paper piercer, white gel pen; Finished card measures 5.5"x4.25"
