I've been dying to get these little creatures from the new Salt Air: Fauna stamp set inked up! I wasn't assigned these particular stamps for the release and I was so busy I didn't get a chance to ink them up! They are soooooo much fun! To begin, I sponged some Peacock Feathers Distress ink onto a panel of Bristol paper. Once it was blended to my liking, I added some flecks of the same ink at full strength mixed with water. I also spritzed it HEAVILY with shimmer spray!
Once that was dry, I used the Window Works Die to cut out a window. I thought that this particular die looked like a seashell or something from the sea! It is the perfect place to set the scene for this pair of Seahorses. I stamped them in two shades of pink for a fun and whimsical look.
You can see how cute they looked nestled into the opening. I had actually used these on a pair of cards that I will be sharing soon as well, and I just wasn't ready to put them away just yet.
I paired the seahorses and shells from the Salt Air: Fauna set with the coordinating Salt Air: Flora stamp set. I didn't want the scene to be too busy so I chose just a few colors.
The sentiment, which is from the Salt Air Sentiments, is heat embossed in silver for some extra shine and detail.
I went a little crazy with the clear Nuvo drops, but I love the detail and whimsy they add to this underwater scene! Thanks for fluttering by!
