 This is the perfect stamp set for making my little grandson a birthday card. He is so into pirates. For  his third birthday I made him a treasure chest and put some maps/treasures inside. I am using a piece cut off one of the canvas-type maps on this card which he will receive for his next birthday. The flag pole is part of a pirate ship die cut and I stamped the trunk again and cut out the skull to place on the flag. The canvas fabric for the sentiment came from Hobby Lobby. I've distressed around the image by curling/tearing some of the paper and inking with Distress Inks. The only coloring was the compass rose.
 
Recipe:

Paper-map canvas from Hobby Lobby, The Paper Studio Textured Waves
Ink-Memento Rich Cocoa, Toffee Crunch, Desert Sand, Tim Holtz Distress Ink-Walnut Stain,
