Seahorses


Since I'm working with the Sweet Seahorse die from Die-Versions, I wanted to create some sort of underwater scene.   If you have been following me for a while, you know that I love trying new techniques.  I know this hair gel technique has been around for a bit, but this is the first time I've tried it.  I have to admit, this interactive portion of the card is really fun to play with.  You can move the bubbles in all sorts of configurations.

To create the frame around the seahorses, I applied Sparkling Sea Sparkle N Soft flocking to double sided tape.  Sea shells and coral brads complete the underwater feel.

Be sure to head back on Monday for the beginning of the Die-Versions July New Releases.  You won't be disappointed.

You are awesome Anne.... I was looking at your card and reading you like to try new things and I was thinking about the hair gel technique and their you go and say it... way too funny. That has been around for a really long time. You did a super job and your card is fantastic and all the extra goodies really adds a lot.
