Not being able to sleep sucks! This is the 3rd or 4th night this week that I have been up all night. My head is killing me, my stomach is a mess.....ok, that's enough "poor, poor, pitiful me."
I was directed to a new digital stamp site (at least new to me) that has some very cute stuff: Hambo Stamps. And like I always do on a new site, I just start clicking stuff. Well, I ended up on their blog. And, guess what.....they have a challenge. Each week participants are given a new digital stamp (FREEBIE), and the challenge requirements.
This week's stamps was a pirate with several sentiments. It took me a little bit to figure out what I wanted to do with a pirate, and settled on this:
Card Base: Recollections black cardstock
Treasure maps: treasure map coloring page, printed on Stampin' Up Very Vanilla paper, colored with Stampin up inks and blender pen, distressed with Vintage Photo distress ink.
Blue back ground paper: DCWV Old world stack
Sand: Kraft paper scrap
Pirate: colored with sharpie markers, obtained from Hambo stamps.
Treasure chest: Coloring page. Colored with Stampin' Up ink and blender pen.
Hope you like it. Have a great day!
- I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.
