It's my turn today to host the MIX-ability challenge over on Splitcoast... I decided to go with a holiday theme, and also to veer from the expected... so today's challenge celebrates Submarine Day with underwater images and scenes...... and a little green, of course!
I made this card with many thoughts of Lydia, who wrote our tutorial for this background technique and also has a special love for seahorses... I did the background using reinkers (Adirondack and Distress).
The seahorse was colored with Inktense pencils... I added some highlights to the bubbles with a white gel pen, and used a little acrylic paint to add to the background. The seahorse image is somewhere in limbo - it was from a company I adored called I Love Rubber Stamps - the company was purchased by Creative Vision Stamps but at the moment those images aren't available online. If you love it, though, feel free to contact the company to inquire - I was told they still have unmounted rubber stamps that they sell at stamp shows.
The sentiment I used is from the Seaside Wishes clear set by SugarPea Designs - such a cute set.
I hope you'll join us for this week's challenge!
