Zac is 3. (When did that happen??)

Im posting today the card I made for our Godsons 3rd Birthday. This is such a lovely image from All dressed up stamps- which you can find here. It is called It's a Pirates Life.

It was really fun to colour and I love using blues and reds together and I thought it would look good on a circular card base. I used a scalloped circle Nestibilities die from Spellbinders to cut the image and the blue mat- which is from Doodlebug Kraft in colour collection. The ribbon co-ordinated well with the colour of the waves and allowed me to attached the tag which is from Craftwork cards.
I used Doodlebug pendant stickers which I mounted onto black card to stand out and also Doodlebug numbers and letters to spell on today.

I used stickles on the clouds to make them shimmer and added some silver pen to the anchor and swords as well as some gold to other metal objects. I also used white gel pen on the waves to give them a little dimension. You can't really see it on these pictures but I used some pale blue pencil to tint the sky.

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers on the image -
Boat - Tan, Nutmeg, Raw Sienna, Cocoa & Burnt Umber.
Skin - Antique white, Blush, Soft Peach & Coral.
Clothes and flags - True Blue  & Poppy Red.
Flags & Hat - Cool greys 5, 4&3 (1 to shade the white areas)
Sea - Sea mist, Pastel Green & Oasis.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
Have a good weekend everyone - speak soon,
