Here's Alvida the Pirate with the Treasure Chest before it was cut out. I colored both images separate then put them together at the last minute. To do this I cut a slit above the Treasure Chest where the foot would go in. Once it was aligned then I taped it together on the back.
While looking for the right size die to cut the background with I noticed the Jumbo Scallop punch was upside dwon and so I thought it would be perfect for waves! I glued them to the base of the card then used foam dots at the top part to pop them out of the page. The money used to be charms and I cut off the necklace loop on each of them and attached them with large Glue Dots.
Here's a full side view giving a good shot of the other embellishments. The corners are my favorite laser cut chipboards, also avialable from Make it Crafty, and I colored them with Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabbers - it's the quickest way and easy to get full coverage.
Here's the background of The Cove before it was put cut. It helps to create an illusion if some of the white is left. Also the waters farther away are darker and so the close water is lighter in color. You might also notice the beach closet to us have dots for the sand but in the background is solid coloring because of the distance.

Did you know? I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General (often referred to as the Major-General's Song or Modern Major-General's Song) is a patter song from Gilbert and Sullivan's 1879 comic opera The Pirates of Penzance. It is perhaps the most famous song in Gilbert and Sullivan's operas. It is sung by Major-General Stanley at his first entrance, towards the end of Act I. The song satirises the idea of the "modern" educated British Army officer of the latter 19th century. It is one of the most difficult patter songs to perform, due to the fast pace and tongue-twisting nature of the lyrics.
