It's A Pirate's Life For Me

No comments
Continuing with the Mer-May theme, I have created one of my favorite card styles with this gorgeous pirate mermaid.  I love the twisted easel because I can add extra details without having to make a bigger card. 

Being a pirate I went for something different and gave her a black tail.  I usually go bright girly colors for mermaid tails so I'm super pleased with how this turned out. 
For the background I took inspiration from my Make It Crafty sunset sky coloring tutorial.  I wanted it to look like the sky was on fire... possibly from burning ships that our pirate girl had looted!

I had a lot of fun with this project.  I wanted to give the feel of a pirate's treasure map, so I got a lighter out and burnt all the edges of my scrapbook paper!

It's been a little while since I used my chipboard words, but I thought they would finish off this card nicely with a touch of black sparkle

'Pirate Dreams Mermaid' was our One Day Fae this month, but don't panic if you missed her.  She's now available right here.

Have you colored her up? Please do share this or any other images you have worked with in the Faery Ink Facebook Community
