Part of Your World 4: Yo Ho, Treasures!

We are back, mateys, with a little treasure between pirate lad and lassie! Nicoletta Zanella illustrator and creator of Whisper Friends from Pink Your Life created these pirate stamps with tons of character that are so fun to color!

Each stamp has a background scene and appears as though one has stayed back as the Lookout while the other found the loot, both with so many fun coloring opportunities!

Speaking of opportunity, there is a Whisper Friends Pirates Perfectly Clear Stamp Set to give to THREE commenters! Comment here on our blog and that of the designers participating in our pirate theme week! Deadline to comment is June 4, 2017, at midnight Pacific Time. US winners only. See Official Contest Rules for details.

Ready for some pirate inspiration? Here are designers participating in today’s hop –
