Lady Pirate

Hello folks.  We have another challenge at One Stitch At A Time so how about popping over to see all the fabulous creations by the design team.

Challenge #178

Theme ' Anything Goes - with a twist'

The twist is ... We are asking that you only use StitchyBear Digi Images (So that includes all the creators at StitchyBear Digi Outlet ).  The sponsor for this challenge is .... Stitchys Angels. ( That's us .. the DT) We are so excited to share with you that our prizes include a large selection of ribbons, 2 scrapbooks, a selection of flowers to name but a few.

A great chance to grab those StitchyBear items with a 40% discount :)  Wonderful digital items for every occasion and every style :)

It was my teamie Tammylee's turn to chose a digi for us to work with and she chose this fab image called Lady Pirate by our awesome creator Ike.  Not my usual image to work with but perfect for the 'out of the box' thoughts.  I have a pet hate for guns of any description and it was the pistol in the digi which jumped out at me.  All I could think of was bullet holes <g>.  Following that thought I designed a background paper with lots of bullet holes all over it.  The grey colour scheme I think happened accidentally - obviously I was in a grey area with the pistol made worse by the bullet ridden DP lol. The DP was then embossed with an Die'sire embossing folder.  l I coloured the digi with ProMarkers and fussy cut her, attaching her to the card with foam tape on the rocks section. The ship image is from Iclipart which I cut out and placed so it appeared to be coming from behind the rocks.  Just to impress my sister I have added a real feather to the pirate ladies hat - it is a really lovely white fluffy one (sorry could not resist):)

With not having made an easel card for a while I thought I would make this card one.  On the inside/base of the card I added a Happy Birthday greeting and placed it around yet another bullet hole - this is certainly a bang bang card!!!!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-


  1. I think this is a lovely card, apart from that darned feather :-) ..... are you trying to put me in an apprehensive frame of mind for the rest of todsy? :-) Seriously though,, I share your dislike of guns but I think your DP is ingenious and very effective. I also love the Pirate Ship coming round the rocks. With so much to look at and enjoy (feather ecxepted) the gun has become less obvious whilst the image stays focal. Well done you xxxxx

  2. Freakin' AWESOME - I LUV the feather and the added pearls :-D Fantastic creation. You could've always cut the pistol off and stuck something else in her hand :-D I don't mind what people do with my schtuff x

    IKE xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  4. It's brilliant, it reminds me of that film 'The Goonies' when the ghost pirate ship comes round the rocks! I nearly added a feather to the card I've just been making but I resisted. :) Hazel x (Oops, nearly posted I'd added a 'father' in the above message.) Too quick for my own good.

  5. She looks ready to take on the world, great job.
