Your Ship or Mine?!!

Well, that's a pretty sassy sentiment for me to be using, but it does work perfectly with this card. Our vivacious Vicki is the hostess for the challenge this week and she wants us to make a scene using two or more Kraftin' Kimmie images on our cards.

Gulp!! That was my reaction anyway. However, once I got really going, the more I got into it. I decided to use Cutthroat Lizzie and Captain Scurvy because if I positioned them the way I wanted, they looked like they were giving each other the eye. So then I coloured them in with my Copics. I really wasn't sure how to make it a scene as I only recently started to collect Copics and didn't have much to use for the background. I then thought of painting in 'sand' using some Gold Shimmerz and I was quite pleased with it. Then I sponged some chalk ink (one of only two I own), coloured and cut out the barrel of rum, which is the accessory stamp with Polly the Bar Wench. The sentiment I used is from the Pirate Sentiments, which are a part of the new release.

Make sure you check out the fabulous creations of all the other Krafty Girls over on the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge blog, then show us your creations. Now, you don't have to use two main images, you can just use one main image and an accessory stamp.

Have fun with it and show us what you come up with,
