Hello and a Happy New Year from Elizabeth. My first project for the year is using one of Kay's new Collectors Edition stamps, the Seahorse, which she designed especially for me.
Now sadly I managed to loose several photograph's as I swapped over onto my new laptop, so I do apologise.
Firstly I die cut a tag and covered it in the map paper and gave it a coat of White GeeSsoGood before adding Glass Bead Gel and Mica Flakes, for texture.
I added a few large glass beads for more dimension. I had a scrap piece of inked card left over from making Christmas cards, which was just the right size and colour for stamping two of the Seahorses onto. After cutting them out I adhered them to the tag, so they were entwined.
I diluted some Verdigris and also Crushed Velvet Luscious and added the two colours all around the Glass Bead Gel, blending the edges so not to have any lines.
Finally I added sequins, some words from the Chit Chat Seasonal book with a frame drawn around, and a few black dots to tie the colours together.
