Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time ships were made of wood and pirates were conquering all seven seas. Not all, there was this one brave law abiding citizen, who thought and practiced that words were more powerful than any sword.

Frederic Isaac talked sense to the pirates (of the seven seas) and got hold of gold treasure from the bottom of one of those seven (already mentioned) seas.

Sentiment is a folded mini card, tried to add a mini envelope, but this 300gms kraft was a bit too thick.

I'm so pleased how the chests came out :) Glossy accent and Do Crafts glitter, oh sparkling! Really caught on camera <3

Flash won't do justice, sorry to say, but true. Frederic Isaac's suit has shading, but well, here we are. Frederic Isaac Newton is actually the name of my apple tree, but this image needed a proper name :)

Image - Kraftin Kimmie was stamped on kraft using Memento Tuxedo ink
Treasure Chests - old stash stamp
Ships - old stash stamp
Kraft - Papermania
Sentiment - Lili of the Valley
Colorine - Prismacolors
Glossy Accent and gold glitter
