Loads of Laughs at Ike's World Challenge Blog

Avast, matie! Thar be a new challenge at Ike's World Challenge Blog, and we've hit the midway point. No, it's not Pirate week! The theme is to "Make Us Laugh." While my Lady Pirate from Ike's Art is not funny in and of herself, the sentiment I used should qualify.
My project is a hybrid canvas. I hand-drew and colored my background, colored my image with Copics, fussy cut her and placed her onto my background. Then I used my improving digital skills in Photoshop to add a few elements to give the scene more life, like the boat (element 25, Boring Evening Elements 1 Pack, Krysty Scrap Designs) and fence (Our House Elements 1 Pack, Rucola Designs by Ildi Geist). The treasure chest is an altered project I created for my son's beach-themed wedding almost 3 years ago.
I framed my canvas with blue textured paper from Grungy Christmas Paper Pack, Decosse's Dynamite Doodles, and Glitter Overlay 3 Kit and patterned paper 09, Dead or Alive Paper Pack,   Krysty Scrap Designs.
Now tickle your funny bone and join in the fun at Ike's World Challenge blog this week for your chance to win free digis! Whatever you create, have fun!
