Seahorse Collage

I was pretty happy with how this turned out, and I must say it wouldn't have been possible without my Christmas-gift Cuttlebug - it's the gift that keeps on giving! (thanks again Dad ;o)

Also many thanks to Betsy at ISC for sending the foil sheets, which she carries (it's called Shimmer Sheetz), along with my last batch of stamps so I was able to try this technique so quickly. This was my "practice" card before I used the product with ISC stamps, but I liked it so much I had to share it here!! LOL

Card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

The main image panel was inked in various shades of pigment inks, direct to paper. The images (from Oxford Impressions, the By the Sea sheet) were stamped in black Staz-On over this. The ticket and hotel sign were stamped on a piece of white cs brushed with light green pigment ink. The shells were stamped in black ink on a piece of dark green cs.

The white swirls are on a background of heavy foil (which you can see as multicolored shimmer irl), and it is a technique from the current TechniqueJunkies newsletter. The dark green cardfront was embossed with the Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles folder. The swirls are the Cuttlebug D'vine Swirl folder.

Thanks for looking!

WOW! This is AWESOME! I'm sure the scan does not do this beauty justice!
