Seahorse Card

Hello everyone,

I have been quite busy creating cards this weekend, wanted to make sure I don't miss the deadline at some of my favorite challenges...
Here is my latest creation:


For my base layer I used a piece of heavy water color paper and painter is in blue tones. Then, I covered is with splashes of Broken China Distress Paint and Picket Fence Distress Paint. I applied hot glue here and there...
I used a hand died piece of cheesecloth and some decorative sisal, as well as a string of jute to create that base for my seahorse arrangement.


I applied alot of texture paste onto the seahorse cutout and colored it with Broken China Distress Paint. The shell you see on this card were found on the beach in Florida when we went there on vacation recently. :)
The big star was bought in craft store though...and the little white one was made out of crafter clay. I added couple pearls here and there.


You can see in this photo how dimensional this card is...


Metal plate sentiment was colored with Broken China and Picket Fence DP and I pulled some cheesecloth through the back before attaching it to the card...


One more look at the finished card...

I am entering this card into following challenges:

Frilly and Funkie Challenge "It's Time for a Vacation"

and

Scrapclub Kiev Quest #82 Pallete ( I used Blue, Peach and Beige)


I hope you enjoyed this post...
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by...

  4. Wow, what a wonderful underwater scene you have created in such a gorgeous colour palette. Love the seahorse and all the other shabby and beachy (if that isn't a real word, I declare it to be one now) elements. Thanks for joining us at Frilly and Funkie.
    Hugs!

    1. OMG :) Thank you soooo much Georgie :) I loved your inspiration card for the challenge, and really wanted to do tags, but I really did not have much time that day to do as elaborate project as yours is, so I had to settle with just plain one base layer card with plethora of embellishments piled up...it turned out nice though huh? You made me giggle here, you are too funny my friend!!!

  16. Wow, Samra! You must have had some experience with the beach, huh? This is another drop dead gorgeous card! I love every single one of the embellishments, but most of all love those little drops of glue! I'm so stealing that idea! (If it's ok with you???) Thank you for your tremendously head expanding comment on my blog today...Made my day! Hugs!
