So Suzy Stamp of the Month June release day

It's the 10th of the month and that means So Suzy Stamp  of the Month release day!

For the So Suzy Stamp of the Month Club, you'll get a stamp in the mail that is "coastal themed" (beach, nautical). The program includes a great mixture of sentiments and images. You can sign up for three months to try it out or sign up for the whole year - regardless of where you are in the world! At the end of the year, you''ll have a great collection of coordinating stamps.

This month you'll get not one but two stamps! There is a funny Jack Sparrow saying sentiment stamp and a BONUS stamp a cute little starfish.
I LOVE all the pirates movies! Seen them many times. Jack always makes me laugh. So I was very happy to see the June stamps.

For the release day I made a pirate map card.
The map is a free download. There are lots of treasure maps to download on internet. I found my free download here.
The coloring of the water, mountains and cross I did digitally in photoshop. I tried coloring it with my alcohol markers but I wasn't pleased with the results. So I colored the map in Photoshop and printed it on paper from a brown paperbag.

To give the paper an old look I torn and wrinkled the paper en distressed the edges using Tim Holtz distress ink.

I stamped the sentiment also on the same paper and distressed the edges.
Then I attached the paper to grey cardstock and added a piece of rope and a wheel embellishment.
I put some foam pads under the sentiment.
