Pirate Tilda - AGAIN!!

Hi there

HAPPY EASTER to you all!

As I told you the other day, when I first got my clammy little mitts on this delightful Tilda stamp I had so many ideas that I struggled to choose just one for a card, hence, I've made a second one.  I copied the design of a jewellry box on to black card, which I then trimmed with gold peel off strips.  I then threaded the various coloured beads onto pieces of wire which I poked through and crossed over at the back of the box.  With them being on wire I could then bend them to whatever shape I wanted.  The 'Beware of Pirates' sign I made up on the computer following something similar that I'd seen on the internet.  The skeleton paper is more of the one I made myself for the first card.   I then added a bit of black raffia lace, and a skeleton head cut from a flag.  A bit of stitching, and I was soon finished.

Thanks for looking, and please leave me a comment if you have time, I love reading what you think.
