Aaaaarrr Matey!

Tomorrow is apparently "Talk like a Pirate Day"
is asking for 
pirate related projects(with a bit of sass obviously)

 I thought this would make a perfect combi with 

 I dug out some pirate stamps I won in a challenge  years ago...
*can we say "just perfect"*
 Selected a stepper card blank...and butchered it.
Don't be shy with card blanks, it's ok to chop them up a bit.
 I used inks to add dimension and interest,
creating a simple Pirate ship effect...
 and I couldn't resist using my newest stamps to add
a skull to the sail :D
 The legend reads 
"Now this is my kind of a cruise"

Quite pleased with this little adventure...
Enjoy XXX
