Sea-ing double???

The caption was my husband's idea : )  Sea horse sea-ing double......



 We were challenged (as a group) on the Michael Strong (Yahoo) Group to use the Seahorse stamp to make a card. We had no restrictions about colors or anything else....

I used a piece of a Simple Sumi (Technique Junkies) scrap- just big enough for one the large and one of the small seahorses.  I stamped in Versamark ink, then embossed in black EP. I sponged on the ink for the background. I added Crystal Effects on the bubbles, and added a few sequins here and there, then decided to add a seqins strip across the top of the card.

Challenges:
International Art and Soul- Embossing

Thanks for stopping by!

"Catch-y" title. Your hubby did a great job and so did you. Love the card. The seahorses really pop from the card. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Ooo, Shelly, I adore those seahorses! Magnificently done. The embossing just makes them jump off the background (which is beautiful in its own right.) Nice touch with the sequins.
