pirate hanna sneak peek

Hi everyone! Tonight is THE night! The hanna stamps release party begins tonight at 9PM EST in the hanna stamps forum. There will be prizes, fun and challenges. I am even one of the challenge hostesses tonight so be sure to stop by and join in the fun.

Today I have a sneak peek of the hanna pirate set. I started by stamping my pirate image in the middle of my white CS and stamping one on scrap for a mask. Then I took a micron black pen and a ruler and drew in my ship deck/wood. I added some dots for the nails and some squiggly lines for the wood grain. I colored the image using copics and prismacolor markers. Next I took my homemade cloud stencil and sponged the clouds behind hanna (I masked hanna when I made the clouds). I made the stencil by taking a marvy scalloped oval punch and punching out a piece of acetate. I then stamped the coins, treasure chest, and parrot colored them, cut them out and attached to my scene. I used some gold stickles on the coins. I matted the scene and used the scallop blade on my cutter for the card base and the white matte layer. Before attaching to the base, I added my ribbon. I made my photo corners by punching out a square, cutting in half diagonally (2 triangles), cutting out the notch and added white dots. I used my ctmh letters to spell out ahoy and punched it and attached to the card. I hope you like it.
