It's a Banner-arrrgh Day! (and International Talk Like a Pirate Day too).

Just in time for the last bit of International Talk Like a Pirate Day, I finished my banner for the Cricut Contest using my Imagine and the Buccaneer cartridge. I used Stone Script cartridge with the ship's wheel pattern for the letters  (with gold Stickles) and Art Nouveau for the mat (edged with Tea Dye Distress Ink). The cheese cloth was tea-dyed and the doubloons were made with circles of gold foil paper run through the Clockworks Cuttlebug folder three times. The pearls were made with clear decorative accents (sold in the candle section at Michael's) also called "skittles" with a drop of Ranger Pearl Alcohol Ink. Beacon's 3 in 1 Glue held all the "booty" on the fabric. And the ever-trusty Papertrey Ink Rustic twine : D.
