FCCB#220 Wet and Wild - Ahoy there Matey!

This week's challenge on Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is to create anything water related!

I have to say I had a blast making this project!  I could not resist adding all the cool little details like the Pirate Hat and the Waves!  I started out with a SVG file from Cre8ive Cutz called Pirate Ship which I altered the ship mast a bit to suit the additional details.  I cut a number of different styles of waves from the Artbooking criut cartridge to create the waves around the ship.

I added this cute little pirate hat cut from the Boys Will Be Boys cricut cartridge!  The pieces were inked and I used a glittered cardstock for the pirate knife handle, I could not resist backing it all with a little burlap!


I hope you can play along with us at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog!
