TMTA / Pirates

Oh, the pirates, lurking everywhere! This is my take on TMTA's this week's prompt, Pirates.

A Real Gu--, eh, Pirate

Too bad the photo doesn't show the glitter on her eye patch!

Is this serendipidity, or what!
An interesting looking paper had been lying in the grass for a few days, but only today I decided to pick it up.
It's the kind that comes along with candy. The kiddies like to tattoo them on their hands, foreheads or whatever. Lookee, lookee, it's a pirate ship and it fitted perfectly!

Other than that it took me half a day, as in: six hours, to do this. Lucky that it was my day off. (I must be slow?) It grew in fits and starts. My original idea was very far removed from this one.

    Mine didn't take as long but is not to my mind a great effort. I love my AJ challenge more this week.

  4. that's really witty. I like it. and don't worry about the circle inchies. it wasn't yours I was particularly waiting for but some that I know have been made but haven't got to me yet. I'll assume you are not doing the circle ones. but don't forget the new swap!!
