A pirate and his lady - Tera

   Tera here today with a fun project for you - a hanging plaque I did - Pirate style. Trick is - who is the pirate's LADY - the ship or the Mermaid :)
  I used 3  Sweet Pea Stamps/images on this plaque.
First the pirate is called 'Ancient One' by Joanne Schempp and I colored him with prismacolor pencils and then coated him with sepia effects from Ranger. Cut him and the next layer under him with Spellbinders dies and edged them in gold metallic pen.
  Next I stamped and embossed the ship - rubber stamp - with black embossing powder onto DP with an old map on it.
  The third image is 'Mermaid #2' by Elaine Cox. I had this old pendant in my 'old and broken jewelry' stash and colored a portion of this image to fit the pendant and glued it on with crystal lacquer and then added a beaded trim around the edge and some beads in her hair with a pearl viva décor pen.
   I used gel medium to attach all the layers to the wood plaque.
  All for today - Take Care
