Ahoy, Matey! (SCS SC215)
I love the Ahoy, Matey stamp set from SU... it's one of my fave SU sets! This is why I bought the Rockabilly paper pack. The skull and crossbones are just so fitting! I love the glossy parts on all the papers in this pack, too.
I colored the pirate with Prisma Colouring Pencils, using the Gamsol technique, where you colour and shade with pencil crayons, then dip the tip of a nib into Gamsol (odourless paint thinner) and blend the colours together. It's a great technique and one I need to keep working on to get better at. This card is also using the SCS sketch (SCS SC215).
What I used (all SU unless otherwise noted):
Ahoy, Matey SS
Old Olive DP
Real Red CS
White Daisy and Black CS (CTMH)
Black ink (CTMH)
