Tiddly Inks challenge 68- Boys will be boys !!

Morning Peeps!!
Its that Tiddly Tuesday time of week again and so its time for a fun new challenge over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog. This week the Tiddly Inkers want to see your....

I really enjoyed this one. Little Mo is really getting into wall hangings now, his room will soon be covered in them. He loves dressing up and pirates and indians are his absolute favs so off I popped into the depths of my tiddlies and dug out this little treasure of a pirate!! he so cute isn't he?
I printed out 2 maps and mounted one straight onto some thin chipboard then I cut around the shape of the map. I cut the corners off the other map and added them onto the board mounted one with some foam squares ( hard to see in piccy but looks real cute IRL!)

Dread Pirate Dylan also got some foam popping out treatment. The little sign part I made in word and then distressed it and added crackle glaze on top, now can I get a piccy of crackle glaze.......nooooooo but it does look awesome I promise!!!

I added a bit of garden twine for hanging it up and cut out the skull from the compass to add to the knot in the string. Yargghhhhh!!!

Now a sneaky little mo has already snaffled this little treasure, little monkey as I was going to put it away for his birthday!!! He has a huge pirate map that my friend shabba bought for him above his head in his bedroom and he was so excited when he saw the sign for his door mummy couldn't say no!!!!

Right must get a wriggle on as am in work today for an extra day and I haven't even thought pack up yet so better get moving!!!

Have a fabulous Tiddly Tuesday!! Hugs lou xxx
