Pirate Love

It's a pirates life for me!!! 

Last year I saw a cute pirate image on a blog and had to search so I could add it to my collection - this is a Nellie Snellen stamp from the Young Rebels line entitled "Brave Captain", which at the time that I found it, was not available for purchase in Canada.  Fast forward to last month, and now One Crazy Stamper carries the stamps in their online store - YEAH!!  I colored the image with Copics ( nothing but E's ), fussy cut, and mounted it onto the background that I created by stamping an oldie but goodie, Tattered Angels Tattered Traveler Compass on to kraft cardstock.  The compass was distressed with Vintage Photo and Bundled Sage distress inks, the charm was colored with Copic E39 and E59, and I typed the sentiment on my computer.
