Inkurable Stampers - Paint challenge

Hello there, sorry for being a bit scarce lately but I've been a bit busy doing other things. I've had a chance to do a bit of crafting today, so here's my entry for Inkurable Stampers March challenge - use PAINT on your project. Just call me 'Queen of the Last Minute' as it's the last day to enter! For my background piece I used some textured watercolour paper, wet it liberally and painted it with some Twinkling H2O's - the colours are Summer Breeze and Guatamalan Green. I stamped a Ferngully seashell stamp along the bottom of this piece using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white EP. For the seahorse piece, I started with some white cardstock and dry-brushed it with some Lumiere paint in a cross-hatch pattern - the colours are Blue, Emerald and Turquoise. I then applied a coating of Versamark ink and heat embossed 3 layers of clear Opals embossing enamel. While the Opals were still warm I inked up the Stamp-It seahorse stamp with black Brilliance ink and pressed it into the warm Opals. I put this in the freezer for a few minutes so I could give it a Cracked Glass finish.

I layered the watercoloured piece onto some turquoise and green cardstock layers, tied some twine around them and finished it with a nautical charm. I edged the seahorse piece with a black Sharpie pen and layered it with some dimensional foam dots. I adhered the whole piece to a folded white card and added the Kaisercraft sentiment with black ink and the Hero Arts 'bubbles' using Versamagic Sea Breeze ink.



I hope you like my card for today, let me know what you think!
