Saturday card: Seahorse

Summer is here!
Nice warm weather,so time for summer cards.
Summer makes me thing of the sea and so I got out 
and stamped them on kraft paper.
I stamped themwith black archival ink and
colored them with pencils. On kraft paper this 
gives a nice soft look.

The white piece of paper is torn and decorated with
two sizes of punchinella that I used as masks
with light and dark blue ink and a blending tool

The seaweed in the background is stamped with versamark
and embossed with silver embossing powder.

Some ribbon and sticky silver gemstones
are used to finish of the card.

Thanks for looking!
Have a creative day!
