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.

Image from here, printed on to Ryman card stock.

Hat/Belt/Pantaloons: Cool Grey 3-5
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
