Of course, thanks to Sister Lee, Edna has all the best pirate accessories. I was not so lucky, and had to get creative...
I'm not sure I'll ever be able to look at this particular Crazy Cat in the same way ever again. He does seem ideal for typical cat treasure-burying in the sand. ;) The eye-patch was easy to add (though I do have to say, Tim Holtz missed out not having one in the accessories set) using first a Sharpie and then a Versamarker and matte embossing powder. I don't even have a good pirate ship in my stamp collection, so had to paint my own with Zig markers before filling in the rest of the seascape with distress inks. The sentiment, too, had to be self-created. It's really a very DIY card! Pirates are always resourceful.
The Sisters had a lot of fun with this theme! (And I'm not the only one who went the pirate cat route, strangely enough...) Our current guest designer Marina had fun with it too. Hope you can join us, and don't forget to set your Facebook language to Pirate on Monday!
