A Pirate's Life for me....

Here's an awesome Sweet Pea stamp from artist ching-chou kiuk.  This stamp is Pirate Skeleton Roses.  Just Gorgeous!!  I couldn't wait to get my hands on it when it became a digi stamp, but it's also sold on a sheet of rubber (Plate #126).  I am using some die cut embossed skulls across the bottom of the card and some gorgeous lace from Turkey to embellish the card, but I really think the image itself takes center stage.  The Thinking Of You stamp comes on Plate#98.

Here's an enlargement of the stunning image.  As you can see, I am coloring the heart, the roses and the maiden's dress in the same colors of Copic Markers R81, R83, R85, R89.  Having the same color pattern on multiple locations in your image draws the eye across the image.

Hope this cards makes you check out the wonderful images of artist ching-chou kuik.  She has some gorgeous stamps including other pirate themed images as well.
