CRAFT Challenge #423 Inspired by a Book

Good morning! At CRAFT Challenge this week we'd like you to be Inspired by a Book.

Mine is 'Treasure Island' by Robert Louis Stevenson. Arrr, Jim lad!


The image is an old one by Bugaboo Stamps. I used some very old pirate buttons, cutting off the shanks before gluing them down. The blue strips are supposed to represent the treasure trail - in hindsight I should have stamped arrows along each strip! Hindsight is a wonderful thing!

I used stickers for the sentiment, and the paper is from stash.

As Lord Melchett said in the Blackadder II episode 'Potato,' - "With a Yo Ho Ho and perhaps I might venture a bottle of rum into the bargain."

Our sponsor is wonderful:

Go and see my teamies' creations - you may well be inspired to read the books they have illustrated!

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!
