A pirate’s life for me!

After a four week break, my ProMarkers are out again. This week’s challenge over at Passion for Promarkers is ‘a pirate’s life for me!’ While searching for a suitable piratey greeting (I didn’t find one), I discovered that there is an international ‘talk like a pirate’ day each year on 14th September. Shiver me timbers!

Base card:
14x14cm card folded from my favourite Ryman card stock, and notches cut out with scissors. I then airbrushed with Satin/Tan/Cinnamon/Cocoa and edged with Burnt Sienna. Outlines are drawn in Cocoa with an ultra fine tip, the island coloured with Tan. All freehand.

Pirate:
Image from here, printed on to Ryman card stock.

Cutlass: Cool Grey 1-3
Gold: Canary/Sunflower/Gold
Beard: Tan/Cinnamon/Cocoa
Jacket: China Blue/Royal Blue/Indigo Blue
Skin: Satin/Oatmeal/Apricot
Parrot: Lime Zest/Lime Green/Bright Green
Boots: Cool Grey 5/Black
