Shiver me Timbers!

Hello! Here's what I did with my Labor Day! No kidding, this card took me ALL day and I have no idea why it should have. But, I got very little else done today~just ask my husband! LOL!
This is Jolly Roger Tilda from Magnolia-licious. She is number 248 and is in stock now! Tilda is stamped on cream card stock and colored with my copics. The papers are a mixture of companies, (Graphic 45 and Bo Bunny). I got them at my LSS just for a pirate card. I liked the richness of the colors and how the text paper looked old, like part of a pirate's treasure map! The sentiment is from Memory Box and I think would be great for a birthday or a belated birthday card.
Here is her close up shot. I may still add stickles to her Jolly Roger flag! I knew I should have sewed in black thread on the card, but since I had worked a long time on it I decided on fake stitches!
Copics used are as follows:
Eooo, Eo1, E11 and R30 for skin
Hair , boots and all browns E42, E43, E25, E29 and on occasion E31, E35
Reds, R27, R37 and R59
Y21 was used to add yellow here and there and BG10 for the blues behind Tilda.
Well, I'm off for my first day with students today! I'll be doing my best to continue posting frequently. The world of Special Education changes drastically every year and this one (my 32nd) is no exception. I try to remember that change keeps me on my toes!
Wishing you a wonderful day!
Hugs, Cheryl

Hi Cheryl, What a beautiful card. You put so much detail into your creations, no wonder they always turn out fanastic. Hope your first day back to school is terrific. Nancy

Oh Cheryl, this is a wonderful card, so much to see and enjoy. I had one of those all-days cards too, my first card with a frame. Whew! This is a great card. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Michelle said...

Well this has to be one of my favoritest cards that you've ever done so who cares how long it took you! That's what I say :) Hope you had a great first day....I worked with special needs kids for about 2 years & while I loved it I was exhausted by the end of the day! I do miss them though, they are the best!
