Sea Horse


I had so much fun with the July release at Frantic Stamper - this is another one of the cards I made.

One of the amazing things about this card is the background piece (the center panel). It looks like DP, right? It isn't. I made that using a Frantic Stamper Background Stamp and Ranger Distress Oxide Inks. It was a lot of fun!

I used water color paper and my Misti to create this look. The Misti was important, because I actually stamped the piece four times in the exact same spot - each time with a different color of Ranger Distress Oxide Ink. Between each color, I spritzed the paper with water and let it dry.

The Sea Horse is a Frantic Stamper Precision Die.





Oh, and that "netting" piece... it's actually a piece of the bag that my Vidalia Onions came in. That's recycling at its smelliest, right?




Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Wow - what a great result with those DOX inks Jeanette - that is one stunning card - onion smelly though it may be - it's supposed to be salty smelly!
