Today's card features Michael Strong's Cloisonne Seahorse
and the shell from his Mini Cloisonne Creatures.
When I saw Laura Bomber's At the Seaside card on her Laurart blog I had to CASE it
With her permission I'm sharing my version.
I used a preciously made alcohol ink background-nothing special on mine.
She used a stencil when making her background, which is really pretty.
With Versafine black onyx ink,
I stamped the seahorse and shells on white cardstock.
I was happy to see distress inks peacock feathers and mowed lawn were a good match for my background.
So I dabbed some ink on my craft sheet and used an aqua painter to color the images.
I added a Stampin' Up text stamp on the 2 plain corners
and sponged the edges with black soot distress ink.
Sentiment from Tim Holtz stamped on a small rectangle.
My layers were adhered with dimensional foam.
I have thoroughly enjoyed being card captain at the Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps Yahoo Group.
