Ms Seahorse from DogGoneStamps


I have decided that this beautiful seahorse from DogGoneStamps is definitely a girl, she has that "Come Hither" look in her eyes. I think she is adorable.

I stamped her with Memento black on Cryogen white, then used Copics YR21 for her body and YR12 and YR14 for shading. Her baby blues are B02.

I used my Nestabilites Curved Rectangles to die cut her out, airbrushing B21 around her in a kind of splotchy pattern before removing the paper from the die. I chose my Cuttlebug Bubbles embossing folder for the Bazzill Bling blue card stock. It really has a nice shimmer to it.

Some layering and some airbrushed gems to match and she was finished. Does she make you smile?
