Seahorse Cards

Who doesn't love seahorses??? So pleased to see the Seaside Notions Stamp Set in the new 2019/2020 catalogue.

Today's cards are all similar, just different background ink colours.

To create the background I trimmed watercolour paper and used a brayer to add the colour, deepening the colour at the top. I then lightly spritzed with water, used a pipette to add a few bigger drops of water and pressed with a paper towel to dry off. When it was completely dry, I stamped the  coral in the coordinating colour.

The seahorses and shells were Silver heat embossed and I die-cut lots of seaweed and shells from Smooth Sailing Dies and Under the Sea Dies with Whisper White.

I then trimmed 3 pieces of Vellum 3 1/2" wide x 2 1/2" high and used scissors to cut the shape of the sand. I cut a smaller piece for the top layer, then turned the other piece upside down and added behind the first.

Finally die-cut the Stitched Rectangles from the largest and fourth largest dies and mounted to create the frame. All other pieces were slipped in behind and between the vellum, and the searhorses were mounted. Finished off with some rhinestones and a few coloured gems.
