Pirate Treasures...


Hello friends!

MerMay is in full swing at Sweet November Stamps and as we were brainstorming the digital release for this weekend the ideas simply wouldn't stop flowing! We knew we wanted to merge the whole pirate theme with our mermaids but we couldn't decide if the mermaids should be cute little chibis or semi dangerous divas. Ultimately we decided to go ahead and do both, splitting this release between Saturday and Sunday. Today we are focusing on the cute chibi mermaid collection called, Pirate Treasures. We have Silver, Morgan and Bellamy as well as a Pirate Background Builder set that is perfect for creating under-the-sea environments that these adorable little mermaids love to explore.

First up is Silver and it looks like she has found a treasure map within that sunken pirate ship. She may not know exactly what she is looking at but she sure likes all the pretty colors! Besides the ship from the new Pirate Background Builders I also brought in the fish that come with Tide Mayfin and Manny, the Mantis shrimp. The rocks are part of the Ocean background builders set.

Next we have little Morgan with her spyglass. She is having a blast looking through the strange contraption she found and Palu, the octopus wants to see what all of the fuss is about. I have set the scene for these two again using a mix of digis from the new Pirate Background Builders and the older Ocean background builders set.  

Now be sure to go check out the Friends of Sweet November Stamps group on Facebook for even more Pirate Treasures inspiration from Caitlin, Melissa and our very special guest, the talented Mindy Baxter! I will also be coloring Bellamy Live later this morning at 11am PST on my Adventures in Coloring with Amy Facebook page and I hope to see you there!
