Lavinia Stamps Sebastian Seahorse and Urchin Card

I seem to be on a roll with my crafting this week.  Here's a card featuring Lavinia Stamps Sebastian the Seahorse.

I created the background by putting three shades of Distress Oxide Inks (Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Blue Print Sketch) on to my glass mat, I then spritzed the ink and dragged a piece of white card through the ink till the surface was mainly covered in ink.  I used my heat gun to dry it before commencing stamping.

For this card I have used Lavinia Stamps throughout the project, starting by stamping "Sebastian" the seahorse in Versafine Clair "Medieval Blue" ink.  I used the same ink to stamp the "Sea Urchins".

I masked the seahorse and the urchins and then used the "Marine Kelp" stamp with Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink.  I coloured the kelp with "Peeled Paint" Distress Oxide, applied with a paint brush.  At the same time, I created reeds swaying in the background.

I used the "Sea Bubbles" stamped in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink, adding some white highlights to the bubbles, the seahorse and the urchins using a white Signo pen.


  1. The medieval blue is such a beautiful vibrant shade and looks fabulous against the lighter blues and greens a brilliant card

  2. A lovely card Sam. Take care and stay safe.

  3. Beautiful, Sam. Love the urchins and the blues.
