Forget Me Not "Seahorse" Card

For this card, I have used "The Forget Me Not Kraft Kabin" seahorse stamp.  I'm not sure if you can read the writing alongside the belly of the seahorse, but it reads"...to be free as a seahorse..."

This card started with a base that I had prepared on the gelli plate using Colorbox ink brayered on to the gell plate and splashes of Brusho paint. The background in real life is the palest of blue with pretty blue and green markings.  

I then stamped the "Seahorse" image using Versafine Clair "Blue Belle" shade of ink.  I coloured in the seahorse using assorted shades of Arteza Brush Pens.

Using a stencil with assorted sized circles cut out of it, I filled the circles using a Wow! Embossing Pen.  I then coated the circles in Wow! Sea Mist embossing powder and heat set.

Part of the Seahorse stamp set are some bubbles, so I stamped these across the card using a Memento ink in the shade of "London Fog".  Using a white and a silver glitter Signo pen, I added highlights to various areas of the card.
