Sea Horse Love....

Today I have a fun assortment of seahorse cards to share with you...  Just For Fun recently added several sea/ocean related stamps to their StampTangle line of images and I fell in love with the seahorse.  They are such odd yet beautiful creatures - I find them so very fascinating.

So here you go....  The StampTangle Seahorse comes in 3 different sizes - Small, Medium & Large so there is a perfect fit for all your needs.  Since the male seahorses take care of the young I thought they would make a perfect pair for a Father's Day card...  The "ocean" background for this card (and the last card) was made using alcohol inks.  I love the effects you can achieve using various colors and techniques.  

The next seahorse card is my favorite...I don't know what it is about blue, ocean & canvas but it's always a great combination.  I guess that's why I love how this card turned out.  I used Danube Blue Luxe ink from Tsukineko to stamp all of the images. (Luxe ink is a mixed media ink great for use on fabrics.) I also edged each piece of canvas with Peanut Brittle Luxe Ink for a bit of that sandy beach feel.  

Finally I wanted to make a really bright ocean scene because from what I hear and see on television the ocean is full of beautiful colors.  Now I'm sure my ocean is a bit brighter than the real thing but I had lots of fun coloring it up!  

What's your favorite sea creature?
