The Seahorse

Hi! I have made a card today using a gorgeous new image from Sweet Pea Stamps by ching-chou kuik, called The Seahorse! I also used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch #90. When I saw her sketch this week I knew it and this round image were a perfect match and I couldn't wait to put them together! I originally colored the background with my Copics, like the rest of the image, but then I went over it with Twinkling H2O watercolors. They are really becoming my go-to medium for the backgrounds of the Sweet Pea images!

The Details:
Stamp: ching-chou kuik's The Seahorse - from Sweet Pea Stamps
Paper: My Minds Eye, Dark Chocolate and White (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Skin: R00,E00,E11,E13,R20
Hair: G000,G00,G02
Clothes: BG72,BG75,G02,YG03 w/RV10 over it, YG95
Seahorses: YG21,YG03 w/RV10 over it, YG95
Background: E47,E49
Misc: Twinkling H2o watercolors, Recollections Stick on Pearls, Sakura Clear Stardust Pen

I hope you will stop back by tomorrow - I will have some surprise Sneak Peeks for you!
