Under the sea ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week has been a good one and you have lovely weekend plans. I’ve been dipping into my snippets bags again and came across the background I have used on today’s card so I decided to stamp something so that I could use it …
A 5" x 7" card
Good to post
I do love this seahorse stamp!
The shimmer and shine from the Pebeo Dyna paints can be seen here

Created especially for these Challenges

Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge Add a little sparkle:
I used Pebeo Dyna acrylics to colour the seahorse and to paint the grasses with. Also I used lots of gems to embellish my seahorse

I created the background by using Brusho watercolour crystals to colour a sheet of card. Once dry I stamped the script across the card to add detail. The seahorse was stamped onto a snippet of white card and then coloured and embellished from then on. I die cut a Happy Birthday sentiment and we have another male birthday card for the box. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x

Oh this is beautiful. I love subtle darker blue in the sea horse. The Background came out awesome -- that yellow really makes it pop!
