Now for card number two :)
You are used to me using the fabulous digital images by Wendy Hall from Digital Delights but today marks a new journey for me as I'm now on her team for her clear stamps produced by Clear Dollar Stamps! She's been designing these for quite a while and I was super happy when I got to be a part of the creating team!
The first set I got to work with is released on May 1st and it's called Pirate Ahoy!
And we now have coordinating digital stamps to go with the set so you get both experiences in one card!
These are the fabulous clear stamps;

And these are the digi's!

I made a card using both and I hope you like it :)

I printed 3 of the ships and used them as a border. I also stamped the pirate twice and popped him up for dimension.
Then I added glossy accents to his boots, buckle and the water and windows on the boats.

This sure is a super fun set.
Thanks for looking at both cards today :)
