See the Seahorse

Today I got out a couple of "new" stamps out and had some fun! (new cuz they have never seen ink before!)  My first post for the new year and for the  Tag Along Blog Challenge, #70 Anything Goes.

 I have been sitting on this background stamp for at least a year, got the steam punk seahorse a few months ago, shame, shame on me!  and finally had time to put them together. I stamped the seahorse, masked her....then added the background stamped in Aquamarine Archival....then I decided on pastels. I almost quit when I started adding color.....but am happy with the outcome.


Thanks to Kay Wallace for showing me the road to this challenge blog!

I look forward to a lot more fun stamping this year!  Anyone with suggestions on challenge blogs, please let me know.
