Pirate Pelican- SCIC18

It's Thursday and that means its time for another Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge! This week we are celebrating the end of summer (can you believe it.....already?) with these beach-y inspiration photos. We also have some exciting new over on the Stampin' Celebration blog....we have a new Design Team is Erica Cerwin of Pink Buckaroo Designs! Be sure to check out her blog...she does great work! And be sure to check out all the other Design Team Members projects this week too!

Here is what I came up with! This card just kind of made itself as I went! I started off with the log-buoy things (anyone really know what they are called?) and then I thought Pelicans are always sitting on top of them..right? and then he became a pirate! I did change the pelican up just a teeny tiny bit, but I have to give credit to Ellen Kemper for the pelican inspiration....Ellen is an incredible punch art artist! Go check her blog out!

The colors and supplies I used on my card are Not Quite Navy for the sky, the Scallop Edge punch and Marina Mist card stock and ink for the water, the Wood Grain background stamp and Crumb Cake card stock and ink for the log-buoy things, the Extra Large Oval, Large Oval, Word Window and Butterfly punches with Whisper White card stock that was sponged with Crumb Cake and Basic Grey inks for the Pelican body, the Boho Blooms flower punch and Extra Large Oval punches with Daffodil Delight card stock that were sponged with Peach Parfait ink for the beak and the feet. The "ahoy" letters were die cut using the Big Shot and the Timeless Type Alphabet die.

Thanks for looking!
and I hope you decide to play along with us this week!
