The Seahorse

Hello, hello! Is everybody looking forward to the weekend?  Well, I am! I'm hoping the weather will be good so I can do some garden work!

Today, I'm sharing with you a card I just finished. The stamps are from the BonVoyage Collection.  I colored the image with Distress Ink and Markers. I bought a big bag of seashells and sand  so you'll be seeing quite a bit of these in my summer/beach themed cards. I couldn't find small corals for embellies so I used Martha Stewart's Branch punch (which I think is a must-have for all crafters because you can use it in any card!)

 Can you see my little pearl in a clam?

 Here's a cluster of seashells  and some corals!

 A closer look at the seahorse... I used some paper glaze for the bubbles for dimension and I think it looks pretty neat!
I wanted the background to be "murky" so I just dabbed it with Weathered Wood. I also used Spica pens to highlight the fins, tail, and stripes for the the seahorse. The paper I used was Cosmo Cricket Salt Air and distressed the edges.

Some beach/ocean charms to adorn the little rope that goes around the image.

 I hope you like this little seahorse card I made. 
Thank you so much for dropping by and visiting my blog.
Have a great day!
