June's Bombshell Blog Hop!!!

Shiver Me' Timbers

Alison has chosen a cool Blog Hop theme to celebrate the summer, Shiver Me' Timbers!!! Here's what Alison says:
 "Arrrrrrrrr!!!! In honor of the latest Pirates of the Carribean flick, and the start of Summer (cruises and such...work with me here, folks) I decided what better theme than pirates! More like the phrase "Shiver me timbers!" Now, I am thinking pirates...but what do YOU think of when you hear that phrase?"

Here is my take on Alison's theme! I paper-pieced the galleon from the Homeward Bound Bombshell stamp set with the lush Cosmo Cricket 'Wanted' papers.
I used the compass and serpent stamps in the background (Tim Holtz Distress Ink Frayed Burlap)
I used Aged Mahogany Distress Ink to colour the ribbon.

Tags are one of my favorite things and this was is great. The stamped background paper is neato and I really like the patterned paper you chose to use for the ship
