Captain Hook / key hook

Hello all!
     This is a very quick posting as the internet connection is a bit dodgy where we are at the moment.  I must also apologise for not commenting on your blogs as I'm on holiday at the moment :)  Normal service will be resumed next week!

                 Anyway, this post is for the latest challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu which is another 'Anything Goes' one so we're expecting plenty of entries!!  We also have some fabulous new DT members so please go check out their blogs from the links shown.

              I wanted to try and work with a digi on a wooden surface so after I paint primed the wooden board, I transferred the The Octopode Factory Captain Hook digi using the mod podge method - see here for a tutorial.  I then painted Captain Hook with acrylic paints and added the quote using Cameo cut vinyl letters.  I screwed in a vintage coat hook where his hook is on his arm and sealed the whole thing with more mod podge.

I would like to enter this into the challenges at Through the Craftroom DoorOne Stop Craft , Inspire me Fridays and Crafting Musketeers

Sorry it's a quick one but I'm exploring Virginia so we've got a lot to get through :)
Thanks for popping in and I will get to your blogs when I'm back.

You have inspired me dear. I went and bought a canvas today to see what I can do. Great find as it was 50% off. Score! Great project sweetie!

OK. Since I'm working my way backwards, I must say that I am now definitely going to try an image transfer.

This is freakin' awesome! Great idea, brilliantly executed.

I think it was fiendishly clever of you to attach the key hook where Captain Hook's hook would be!

I'm pinning this one too as a reminder to myself!
