Arrrrgh Matey!!

Happy Saturday mateys!  This week's challenge at Make it Colourful is to use yellow and purple in your colouring. Our sponsor is Diana from Magnolia-licious.
I coloured Magnolia's Jolly Roger Tilda, available at Magnolia-licious, with Copics (E000, E01, E11, R20, Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17, V01, V15, V17, V09, C01, C03, C05, C07, E50, E30, E33 & E35).  For Tilda's backdrop, I used Make it Crafty's new Treasure Map digi from the new fabulous Arrr Pirates Collection.  To give the map an aged look, I crumpled it up 3 times ~ yup crumpled it up!! ~ and then sponged it with Tim Holtz Distress Inks ~ Old Paper & Tea Dye.  I've had this skull and cross bones DP by Magnolia for ages.  I distressed the edges and sponged them and the cardstock with Old Paper DI.  Flowers are a combo of Primas and WOC combined with a Make it Crafty leaf swirl chipboard.

The beautiful must have Make it Crafty lasercut chipboard embellishments  ~ Filigree Gems (to look like a compass), Filigree Borders and Flower Leaf Swirls ~ were all coloured/brushed with Smooch's Gold Lame.  I edged the flowers with the Smooch too so OK I may have gone a little overboard with the gold but what pirate matey doesn't just loooove gold ~ arrrgh!!  Purple rhinestones are from my stash.

I'm entering the following:
Here's hoping you get a chance to play along with us this week.  For more inspiration from the fabulous DT, don't forget to pop by Make it Colourful for a looksee.

Hugs,
Maria
