Luka the Pirate

Hi all and happy Sunday! Whoo, it really cooled down today and i'm loving it. It's a cool 79 degrees with a little breeze ... yippie! I do believe that Fall is finally here ....

So today was a lazy kind of day, my daughter Stefani watched TV and played her games, while I made a few cards and cleaned the house and finished up laundry. Ok, so I didn't have much of a lazy day, but it felt like it, no pressure today .... It was a good day!

So this is Luka, he's another La La Land Crafts stamp and I'm loving him, I made a card like this using another little pirate, so I thought I would do it again to introduce little Luka! This time I used my Prima color pencils and gamsol to blend my coloring. I think it turned out pretty good.

I used some light peach bazzill cardstock and then I got three different colors of brown ink along with some white ink and sponged it across the cardstock to give it that old wooden board look .... then I took a black marker to give the plank look. I saw this look on another blog ... I can't remember whose blog I saw it on, It was so long ago .... well the weekend is ending and I still have to help Stefani with her homework, so Ta Ta for now, see ya tomorrow and thanks for stopping by!
