Anything but a Card at Crafty Sentiments (GDT)

Well it is with a heavy heart today as I share with you my final project as a GDT member at Crafty Sentiments!! I have thoroughly enjoyed creating with the oh so adorable Crafty Sentiments images and have felt very honoured to have been able to create with the last two months new releases!! So I would just like to Thank everyone at Crafty Sentiments so much for having me especially  Jan who has put up with my last minute creations and silly questions.. I will of course continue to join in the challenges starting next week.
So this weeks challenge at Crafty Sentiments is Anything but a Card! I had fun making this and my son absolutely loves it!!!

I decided to make a door hanger for my son. I made this over a couple of nights as I had to wait for the paint layers to dry although I did finally use my heat gun cos I got sick of waiting. So I painted the door hanger black then with my not so creative hand writing painted the words on which I got from a pirate translator. :)  I then varnished over the top of that! I coloured the images - Tobey - Arr Captain and Primrose - Sweet Treasures in with tria markers and glued them down then covered them in Crystal effects. I also used crystal effects on the pre-coloured  treasure chest and  pirate flag from Bonbon Belles cd collection from Polka Doodles. (I think it will just protect the images more) And to finish them off I just added the anchor charms, the pirate button and then I inked around the edge of the hanger with white ink! Oh and I almost forgot I printed off a little treasure map and tied it on.
I hope that you can join us at Crafty Sentiments this week!
