Argh Matey!!! It's KitCat Sunday!

It's KitCat Sunday!


Please don't panic. I know the KitCat post is normally on the first Sunday of the month, but this month we're posting a couple of weeks later. Have you been wondering where we were???

Michelle is the hostess this month and my goodness, she sent us a marvelous package of goodies. We each received oodles of High Hopes images (with a pirate theme)! Argh! We also received Basic Grey designer papers galore, and buttons and brads, too, and a Rain Drop skull piece. This kit was just too fun. It definitely made me think outside the box.

Argh Matey!!!

I decided to make a scene - a pirate scene, complete with a paper-pieced pirate ship.

This is definitely not my normal card-making technique. (Shiver me timbers!)

I wonder what the other KitCats created with their kits? Let's go see...

Images: High Hopes (stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink)
Coloring: Copic markers
Cardstock: Stampin' UP! Gray
Designer Papers: Basic Grey
Embellishments: rhinestones, Basic Grey brads and button, Rain Drop skull, and Stampin' UP! hemp

Well, shiver me timbers! This is just amazing, Jeanette! Your paper pieced ship is fantastic, and the perfect backdrop for little Oberto! I love the way you used the DP for sails, etc... What a wonderfully creative take you have on this challenge! Kels is right! You totally ROCKED it! I love it, and YOU, too!!

WOWZAH Jeanette! That pirate ship is AMAZING! I love how you used the rhinestones to attach the patterned paper sail, and the cut-out images are great! Super job! {purr}{hug}
