Birthday of A Pirate

I'm sharing a pirate birthday card today with the inspiration from MFT sketch challenge. Pirate is a popular birthday theme among small kids. I'm sure this card will become handy one day :)

For the background, I used the following distress inks.

top: fired brick, spiced marmalade, gathered twigs
bottom: fired brick, gathered twigs, walnut stain, black soot

It was a little out of control when I spritzed some water on the background. The water dots went everywhere instead of around the sun. It looked a bit messy but I decided to continue.

I'm submitting this card to the following challenges:
 Supplies used in this card:
  • MFT Party like a pirate stamp set (MFT)
  • MFT Happy Hippos stamp set (MFT)
  • MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX die (MFT)
