Just Having Fun

Hey all. Got this new Homeward Bound stamp set in the other day and decided I wanted to color her up.

I had fun with the shadows and light on this one. The sun being from underneath actually was interesting to color. I tried a few times, but Not sure I got all of it right. I am so used to it coming down from the top. For the sails and all, I think those are good, as the sun shines up and they would be brighter at the bottom and darker up top... but the clouds - not sure where the coloration should be if the sun is setting. Looking at it it might be wrong, but I am claiming those are thunderclouds now and the rain is getting ready to fall even though the sun is shining sort of. :-)

The sails are the E40, 41, 42, 43 and the black sails are C3,5,7. The boat hull is E13, 15, 17, 18 and then Y11, 21, 23, 26, 28 for the golden areas. The clouds are B60 and B63, and the sun is more of the Y11, 21, 23, 26. I outlined the sky with a little Y0000 near the sun, and B0000 everywhere else. The water is B91, 93, 95, 97, 99.

I added some rope and a few little coins for the pirate ship. I think this would make a great Birthday card for a little boy.

This is my just for fun pirate ship. hope to see y'all back here again soon.



  1. I LOVE this! I have been coloring this set quite a bit lately (making coasters), and I LOVE what you've done with the sails! I may need to borrow your style! Really beautiful job!

  2. Wow, LOVE this!!! Love all the details- the rope, the coins, and the pen nib...beautifully colored, Alaine!!!!
