Sooo as a new addition to the craftster community I figured I had better start pulling my weight instead of just leeching up all the delicious crafty inspiration. Which brings me to..



*pause for whoops and chanting*

I made this for a bookmark swap on swap-bot.com. It looks about 57% better in person.  Its made of heavy card, and all that sketchy artwork is done by yours truly, so forgive my clumsy Viking fists Tongue I swear I deserve some sort of prize for painting the tiny little lines on his teeth. The words say "Here marks ye spot!" in case you can't read it. Which is likely. The skull and the compass rose are both adorned with gold leaf paint and a wee clear gem. The bottom has a thin red braid with a dubloon-style trinket on the end. I was so tempted to keep it but I had to spread the love. What do y'all think?

That's awesome. Me and my friends plan to have a pirate party this summer (following the sucess of last summer's legendary cowboy party) so I'm thinking of stealing your idea because it'd be a great thing to make as a little keepsake for everyone who comes!

Hah, I wish I did calligraphy! Nope, that was just me, a little detail brush, and a lot of intense focus.

and !!! You have COWBOY PARTIES and PIRATE PARTIES??! WHAT?! I'm overwhelmed by jealousy, that is too cool. Feel free to pillage for such a worthy cause!
