I find seahorses fascinating and wanted to make a card featuring a seahorse stencil that I have listed in my Folksy shop.  This is what I made:

I had a spare background left over from mopping up spray inks that I had been using with my Messy Dots stencil and decided that it looked a bit like an underwater scene.  I sprayed through the seahorse stencil in a variety of blue sprays.  There was a bit of leakage under the stencil which I simply dabbed over with white acrylic paint once dry.  I also dabbed through the Messy Dot stencil with the white paint over the seahorse.  I stamped and embossed some seaweed and fish from Visible Image and added a fun sentiment from Lisa Horton along with a few circle stamps in black.  I inked round the edge of the card panel to give the scene a bit of definition.  

This isn't a very CAS card but I like how it turned out :)

I shall link up at Simon's Monday Challenge where the theme is Time and at Simon's Wednesday Challenge which is Animal Magic.

Thank you for visiting!

  2. I always love to see mixed media work like this, Sarah, and wish I could do it myself. There are so many little details to see and that work together to make your underwater scene.
