Ahoy Matey....

It seems like forever since I made a Tilda card, well okay just a few days but it really seems like forever. This is my first card using a Pirate Tilda - thanks Susie! And I don't know what took me so long to colour one up because I actually really like this I coloured primarily with copics, the anchor was a gift from Corry that I distressed a bit, actually I distressed including the map. It's a stampin' up Jumbo wheel map, my kids love it they always stamp it and go on treasure hunts. I crumpled it and added distress ink and tore the edges. The sentiment I printed myself and coloured with copics.
I am entering my card at these challenges.... Magnolia Down Under - travel, Aly's Sunday Challenge - distressed, Let's Ink It Up make a scene.
