Tent Topper for Jake

This is for this weeks Sketch challenge. We were to make a tent topper card. This card is a birthday card for a 4 year old boy. I asked Brandon, and he said it would be good for Jake. Although he it would be better for an 8 year old boy. (His birthday is next Tuesday, July 31 -- I guess that was a hint).


I water colored the map and the little pirate. I used a post-it note punched out with the small oval punch to do the oval again. I really need to purchase the Amuse oval stamps. (anything to buy more stamps *wink wink*).

Stamps: Ahoy Matey and matching wheel Inks: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Old Olive, Real Red, Basic Black, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Going Gray Paper: Kraft, Whisper White, Blue Bayou Extras: White Gel Pen, Tool Kit, Black Marker, Post-its, Dimensionals, paint brush, corner rounder and small oval punches
