Ahoy, Matey! Anything Goes Challenge - Challenge # 10

 Anything Goes is the theme of this month's challenge over at 613 Avenue  Create.  I decided to make a card this month without using my Copic Markers. 
My pencil crayon and PanPastels had not been out of my cupboard for quite awhile.

The image I am using is one by Fabrika Fantasy called Pirate Parrot #1 .  The background I created with PanPastels and an old  rubber stamp called Stoneware Texture.  The image was coloured with Prima Color Pencil Crayons and mineral oil.

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative  Remember to pop  over to 613 Avenue Create to view the fabulous works of the design team. Please join us this month and have a creative week.
