I Treasure You - Under the Sea Sunken Pirate Ship

Happy Tuesday Crafters,

I'm super blessed and excited to be this week's Guest Designer for Die Cuttin Divas.

This week's Die Cuttin Diva's Challenge is Under the Sea.

I have been seeing all kinds of beautiful sea related projects by crafters and I was overwhelmed by their beauty and their creativeness so I had my work cut out for me.   One of the things I haven't seen was an underwater scene with a sunken ship so I started searching for the the right images for my under water scene.

I found a pirate ship in my SVG data base by Miss Kate Cuttables that I felt would be perfect for the sunken ship.    I wanted snorkelers/scuba divers in my scene but unfortunately I didn't have any in my SVG arsenal so I went to the internet to search which brought me to the Prettygrafik website.   They had a boy and girl clipart sets that included a bunch of images that would be perfect for the design I had in my head so I bought them and the designing began.    

I put the card mat size on my Silhouette Design Software screen so I could size the pirate ship, all the sea critters and snorkelers.    Once I did that I printed and then cut them all out.

I used the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Broken China and Faded Jeans ink to make the ocean water.

I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Vintage Photo and Stampin Up Early Expresso to give the pirate ship character and then I ripped it in half.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink Tea Dye to dirty up the sails and then I ripped them and the pirate flags.  A sunken ship has to look damage after all.   

Card Recipe:
  • Sentiment from Scrappy Mom Stamps Designer's Choice stamp set
  • Tim Holtz Distress Oxide
    • Sky - Broken China & Faded Jeans
    • Ship - Vintage Photo
  • Stanpin Up Early Espresso ink also used on ship
  • White Gelly Roll Pen
  • Pearls and gems from my craft stash
