(Pyrat) Booty Call

Yo ho! yo ho! A Pyrat's Life for me! Pyrat Booty And a Pyrat's Life And to sail the deep blue seas!

We're coming up on the second Saturday of the month, which means that it's time for me to post a sneak peek of my ATC submission for this month. The suggested theme was "Pirates". I've taken the liberty of changing the spelling to the name of the label of my favorite rum, "Pyrat". I can see why Pirates were drunk all the time as once you've had good rum you realize that it goes down easy and it goes down good! Now I'm sounding like quite the lush!

I had another concept for this month's ATC that was a 3-D design of a treasure chest full of booty. However, after several prototypes and stressing out over the time it would take just to make the 'chest', I still had the problem of finding enough 'booty' to fill said chests with! So, I scrapped that design and went to a 2-D version of Pirate booty. What you see here is 5 of the 23 I made and each one is different.

Cue the music from Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean ride: "Yo ho, yo ho! A Pirate's life for me..." Yo ho, yo ho!

That's funny Paula -- I headed in the same direction (treasure chest) and scrapped the idea before I even got going with one because I thought it would be too much.

Nice booty cards tho! (Had to think how to say that so it wouldn't be taken wrong!) :)

Hope to see you tomorrow.

Nice twist on words! Do you have any extra cards for a land lubber? Ah, rum and coke sounds pretty good about now.
