Stampin' Up! Beware Pirates! Makes trendy teen birthday cards!

Now, this is a set, I never thought I'd play with... but after Kim brought it to our craft day last week, I had to have a go! Kim also challenged me with a few of my least used colours... Concord Crush, Peach Parfait and one of my favourite neutrals right now... Early Espresso.
I stamped the image in Concord Crush, and then with my glue pen and some glitter, highlighted some of the swirls... Not sure if this is actually visible in this picture... (it is in full version...) Then with my Peach Parfait, I stamped the ARRRR! Sentiment with tone on tone, to give it a dark watermark look. I used the scallop trim border punch, and Early Espresso, which was then layered in Concord Crush and the happy birthday  from Look Who's Turning in Versamark and silver embossed it. The panels were then layered on Early Espresso card. 
Out of all the cards (13) that I made that day, this is my house mate Mark's favourite, he loves this stamp set, and thinks I should get it... I'm some what agreeing with him.... 
Anyway, hopefully Kim will upload her version of this colour combo for you. Head on over, and check out her beautiful cards!
Happy Stamping!
