The Pirate King - Sketchabilities # 105

This time of year it seems near impossible to get pages completed before the challenge deadline. I missed out on the last Sketchabilities challenge so here's hoping I've got this one completed in time.

Here's the sketch that the page was based on ...
 And this is the page...
The photo I've used is from our combined birthday party this year which had a Pirate theme, Jonno went as the Pirate Captain and I was dressed as his Wench ... complete with long blond wig!

Once again I've raided my stash of old papers for this page as well as adding some embossing and inking to the pennants at the bottom of the photo.
The title has been cut on the Cricut using the "Black Letter" cartridge, I've then covered the letters with Ranger Crackle Accents to give it a crazy cracked look. The mask is Kaisercraft "Cogs" which I've sprayed with Glimmermist "Black Magic" & "Iridescent Gold". The gold chain and coins are from the bracelet I brought to wear as part of the costume ... and what do you do with jewellery you brought for a costume but will never wear again???? You use it on the page of the party photos!!! 

Well, thats all for now. Thanks for stopping by.

Kaye :-)
