My pirate's booty

This dude was made for the June contest at Page Maps and the challenges at Candy Shoppe Designs and The Scrappiest.  If you look closely (and I urge you to do so because this took me a long-ass time to do), you will see that I fussy-cut flowers from Cosmo Cricket paper and layered them using pop-dots to make a fun, little, dimensional embellishment.  I also fussy-cut the waves and added stickles to make it look like that white foamy stuff on the tops of waves.  You know what I mean?  I think it happens when a wave "crests?"  I don't know.  I apologize for my lack of nautical knowledge.  My years as a drunken sailor, laughing it up with my friends Peg Leg and Black Beard, are long gone.  Although the damage from the scurvy remains.  As does my big booty.

I like how when I look up close, there's tons of texture! I bought that CC paper and am still hoarding it for the perfect pics! Love the handcutting too!

Love the crest, that white stuff on waves is actually dead mermaids though, according to HCA. (for you uncool kids out there HCA is Hans Christian Anderson, best Fairy Tale author ever. Suck it Brothers Grimm).
