Jack's Bad Day!

Thursday, 20 March 2014

 Hello everyone!

A quick post from me as my bed is crying out for me but I just realised that I hadn't added my own cards to the reminder post for PunkYouGirl's current challenge on Monday - I was so concerned with making sure I didn't miss anyone else out (cos we've had a load of new DT members join our ranks!) and ended up forgetting about myself!!  I've been so busy since then at work, catching up after 2 weeks off sick :(, that I only just realised my mistake this evening!!

So, the challenge is...

Fairytales Gone Bad!

And our very own lovely Kay is supplying the prize for this month!

Here's my Pirates Of The Caribbean themed card:

Now, I'm a massive fan of Johnny Depp, so this image, as fantastic as it is, really creeps me out!!  It is by the lovely Teri at Delicious Doodles and is called Zombie Pirate.  I coloured him with the following Copics: Clothes: E49,47,44. 100,c10,8,6. Bandana: C6,R39,37,29,E44. Skin: E21,00,0000,BV04,00,0000,YG17. Bones: E41.

The papers are by Prima from the Moulin Rouge set. I frantaged the hell out of the Marianne Design die-cut clock and added the Spellbinders Fancy Framed tags 1 piece over it with a computer generated sentiment using the font Blackadder.  The tiny brads in the corners are from Stampin' Up! and the charm and ribbon are from my stash.

The inside has been done to compliment the front.

And that's it!  I still can't believe I forgot my own cards, especially saying as I had 2 cards for it! I'm such a numpty! lol!
I'll do the post for the second one tomorrow or Friday (which is now technically tomorrow, but it's late on Wednesday night as I type!) but you can have a sneaky peeky at it now over on the PunkYouGirl blog where you will also be able to see all the fabulous work by our gorgeous design team - old and new!

I also like Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow ... but I agree that this is a very creepy pirate.
But I like the pirate theme of your card and that you even decorated the inside.
Thanks for joining the Daring Cardmaker's "fairy tales" challenge.
