Pirate Tilda visits the Olympics

Arghh, there's a Pirate at the Olympics...her name is Tilda.  LOL  Actually, i am making a card for three challenges and one at Midweek Magnolia happens to be Olympic themed...and i didn't really feel like using the Edwin image i i tried to be a little bit more creative...and used the Pirate Tilda with the Jolly Roger from the Fairytale collection.

Here is my card and then i will explain:
Okay so first you need to know what the image looked like originally so that you will know what i did...
Magnolia - 874 JOLLY ROGER TILDA-stamping scrapping, stamping scrapping designs, stampingscrapping, paper crafting supplies, card making supplies, stamping supplies, rubber stamps, tilda, edwin, magnolia magazine, ez mount, sweden stamps, swedish stamps, maggies, mini magnolia, magnolia paper, magnolia First, I made a tracing/pattern of the flag and cut it out of plain paper to cover up the skull and bones.  Then i colored in the image.  I decided to make the treasure map that is rolled up in Tilda's hand a i colored it and then snipped the tiny bit behind her hand away and added two leaves.  I used the instructions by Zoe in the Summer Magnolia Ink to color the dress and give some fabric folds..i made the bodice blue and added a tiny star button and a glitter gem.  To get the Olympic circles on the flag, i punched a tiny hole in my paper and then came back with the next size up and punched another hole.  For the tag, i just used the die that came with the tag to make the circles.  To make the gold and red flower i used a spiral die (which i am not fond of).
