Wintery Seahorse ~ MMSC25

Hi Everyone! This week we are welcoming Shawne from Studio 313 as our sponsor. She has designed some of the most charming stamp sets and they are for sale at Clear Dollar Stamps. I've used a seahorse stamp from her collection of Under the Sea stamps. I just fell in love with it when I first saw it! :) And since we are getting closer and closer to the holidays I tried to make it into an Underwater~Winter/Christmas card this time. I didn't quite achieve I was trying for, but I do love how this card turned out anyways. :) I've painted the image and the background with Pearlescent paints to give it a shimmery, metallic look and then after texturing the blue dp, I spritzed it with Shimmer Mists, then layered some different ribbons, pearls, buttons and let's not forget the Stickles! Enjoy!
Congratulations goes to Cabio for her Midnight Madness Masterpiece Award this week! Be sure to head over to the Midnight Madness Blog to see who this week's Midnight Madness Remarkable awards went to and link up with your creation for this week's sketch. Have Fun with it!!! :)

I love your winter seahorse. You can do wonders with beach images even in the winter time. I love all the shimmer. So beautiful. I think it would make a beautiful baby card too.

Thanks for the prayers and always for your friendship and support not just this week but always. You are such a blessing in my life! How lucky I am to have come to know you.

Hugs,
Carolyn

Michelle this is so sparkly and shiny I had to put my sunglasses on to view it!!!LOL I think this is exceptional gorgeous. It's so innovative using the seahorse for a nice Christmas theme card. Since I live in a sleepy Coastal Town, this would be the typical card that my neighbors would purchase to send to friends and family in the northern states to rub-it-in!!! LOL Your work is always exceptional Michelle. Thanks for keeping me inspired!!!

Hugs,
Carol
