Ahoy Mateys!

It's time for another MyGrafico Challenges sketch! Are you ready to play along? Well get your pirate speak on 'cause we're creating with this adorable pirate set by Black Leaf Designs:




















Here's the sketch and my card:











































I stuck pretty closely to the sketch except the right side of the background is wider than the left and in the sketch it's switched. But hey, no worries! That's what makes sketches fun! It's like American Idol - take a sketch and make it your own! (as Simon is always telling the contestants about their songs) 

I distressed the heck out of these images after coloring them with Copic markers. I crinkled and wrinkled, scissored and inked as I wanted the pieces to look a little old and to match the distress-y look of the background DP.

So would you like to play along? Use the sketch as a base for your creation and then uploaded to your blog or other online gallery. Please use keyword MG37 at any public galleries. Then head over to the Challenge blog and leave us a link so we can check out what you created! We would love to stop by and give you an ARRGGG (that's pirate talk for "good job"!) Oh, be sure to check out me mateys (the rest of the Team B DT) as they have more piratey goodness to share with ya scurvy dogs.

Ok, I think that's enough of that! Have a great day and I will see you again soon!
