Land Ho! Be on the Lookout for more Shari Bresciani with Purple Onion Designs!

I don't think this cat saw it coming from up there in his makeshift crow's nest.  It's a little late for him to call out, "Land Ho!"
I stamped and masked the raft, sail, cat, and flag with selective masking to create one very tall contraption for this pirate.  They were then colored with Copic markers.
I masked all the images and the beach and then ink blended the background with Distress Oxides.  Finally, I stamped the sentiment.

Copic Markers: V20,22,25,28, YR07,15,61, R35, Y21,23,26, C00,0,1, E11,13,34,37,40,41,51
