Seahorse Seascape Card using Lavinia Stamps
I saw an article in a magazine recently about rotating a stencil, so thought I would give it a go. I used Distress Inks in two shades of blue through the stencil in one direction, I then lifted and rotated it and put green Distress Inks through the stencil, which gave a two tone cross-hatch design which lent itself to a watery background.
I used the Lavinia Stamps "Seahorse" and "Seaweed 2" stamped in Versafine Ink then coloured with Brusho. In a grey Memento "London Fog" shade of ink, I stamped the bubbles (the stamp came free with magazine). Finally, using Liquid Pearls in a silver shade, I added dots to highlight areas on the seahorse.
