Ahoy Matey

Hi Bloggers,
Well what can I say I popped into sirstampalot during the week and I bought a few more Bon voyage stamps!!
I am so weak, but I just had to have them.
Then to top it all off I popped in again Saturday to see Kim Reygate in action. I say popped, four cups of tea and a few biscuits later I left, head spinning with ideas of resist techniques and how to make a new blending tool :)
So here is my latest project finished it is an easel card but I forgot to photo all angles opps!!

The Stamps I used are
The patterned paper is Magnolia white weathered wood, which I coloured with Broken China Distress ink
Tilda  and the Hawser rope is decopaged with Pinflair Glue (Thanks Kim I am now officially addicted!)
I have used Glossy Accents on the lens and window.
Now for the copics
The Skin are my usual E02, E00, E000, E0000 and for the blush R20
Edwins Hair is E33, E31, E30
Tildas Hair is E44, E43, E42, E41, E40
The Blues are B05, B02, B01, B00, B000 the lens and window are BG000
Edwins Binoculars are C9, C7, C5
The Reds are R27, R24, R22, R20
The coloured in rope are E44, E43
Finally the embellishments are Scrapbook basics antique charms - Nautical
I just wanted to say a huge, huge thank you to Chris, those of you that have had a peek at my blog have all had a look because of her mention on her blog, I can't wait to see her demo tomorrow :)
