Loving Seahorses!

Seahorses are such unique little creatures. Did you know there are about 40 different species of seahorses? And they like to swim in pairs with their tails linked. How sweet is that!

I finally got to play with the Seahorse stamp from TJ.  This lil guy is so adorable! 

To make this card, I started with an A2 card base in white. I used Distress Ink in Broken China and inked the entire base. Next, I diecut an oval shape into a smaller piece of Neenah cardstock. I lightly penciled in on the card base where the oval would be. Using a stencil I made with my Silhouette Cameo, I sprayed some Art Anthology Colorations Spray (Siesta Key). I added some clear Wink of Stella on the background to add a little sparkle.

On another piece of Neenah CS, I stamped the Seahorse with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Using Spectrum Noir Colored Pencils, I colored and fussy cut the image.  I added some gold Wink of Stella to just the seahorse to give him a little shimmer.

I then attached the oval panel using foam adhesive, and added "bubbles" to the entire card using Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew.

I love how this card turned out. I chose not to add a sentiment on the front so the inside could be customized for any occasion.

This is so cute. Love how the seahorse is set back from the card front.
