Little Seahorses and a Contest

Hi! Before I get to my card I want to tell you that Sweet Pea is having a fun contest where you can win an entire sheet of Sweet Pea rubber!!! All you have to do is match up the baby pictures of the DT with our adult pictures (and you can see the pictures and get all of the details HERE on the blog). I admit it would be a little tough for me, but why not give it a try (and you can laugh a little at the pictures in the process!!)

For my card today I was determined to do a little more with the background than I have been lately. Funny thing is I had picked a DP with waves that I was excited about using with this underwater beauty and I pretty much covered it all up! I used my scalloped square Nestabilities for the piece under the main image and a Sizzix photo corner die for the corner pieces. They are both covered in stickles and then I added some gems to the corner pieces. The main image is colored with my Copics and the background is colored with Twinkling H2O watercolors.

The Details:
Stamp: Little Seahorses (Elaine Cox Plate 48) - from Sweet Pea Stamps
Paper: Bo Bunny, Papaya Puree Dk, Island Mist Light (Prism), White (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20,R02,R05
Hair: E50,E53,E55,BG45,BG49,BG72,BG75
Tail: YR15,YR18
Seahorses: YR21,YR23,YR24
Misc: Twinkling H2o's, Scalloped Square Nestabilities, Sizzix Photo Corner die, Stardust Stickles, Darice gems, Taylors Tiny Twinkles, Sakura Clear Stardust pen.

My Hint for the Guess the Baby Pic contest: I liked to wear red even then!

OMGosh!! Let me pick myself up from the floor!! Ok I'm back!!lol
Traci, this is SO GORGEOUS!! I really need some new words!!! Your coloring just takes my breathe away!! OMG her hair is so beautiful and sparkly(LOVE IT) and your background turned out amazing!!! I have every color of the Twinkling H2o's and I hardly ever use it. I use so much ink when coloring in my backgrounds that I decided I was going to start using my Twinkling H2o's more for backgrounds!! The colors you used are so pretty. I am not an orange fun but I find myself using them more and more!!! I guess orange is finally making its way into my heart. Look at all the glitter!!! Just Gorgeous Traci. Her little face looks so innocent and sweet!!!
Okay I could go on and on!!
Hugs and hope you have a great weekend!!
