I made a birthday card today for my son’s best friend who turned 8 today. I wanted to use the Ahoy, Matey! set because I was using the matching wheel to make the wrapping paper for his gift. I used Naturals Ivory, Chocolate Chip and Real Red card stock, and I watercolored the card using my aquapainters (paint brushes prefilled with water) and coordinating stamp pads. Watercoloring is so easy this way! I used linen thread and a 1/16" hole punch to make the little knots on the corners of the pirate picture. Anyone who knows my son Nick knows he is crazy about collecting rocks! He could open his own rock store in his room! Well, his friend is the same way…so we bought him a giant chunk of mica for his birthday…kind of like opening treasure huh?!
