Old paper (more free images)



Found on flickr and free to use under a creative commons license are four great old, aged and wrinkled paper backgrounds. These would be great for treasure maps, invitations, letters of marque or other epistolary pirate paraphernalia (pirate things on paper), courtesy of bittbox.

Click here to see the set. To download one, go to the set, click on it, and then click on the "all sizes" button above the image.

Skulls (More free images)




As a followup to the free scroll post, here are some skulls from myphotoshopbrushes.com. As that name might imply, these skulls are photoshop brushes, so you will have to have photoshop to use them. Enjoy!

Over on Vecteezy, you can download some cool piratey looking scroll banner images. These would be great for things like party invites, posters, web images or anything else your pirate heart desires. They are in EPS format.
