Hello.......

Today's tag was inspired by a colour challenge 
I played with a couple of stencils, translucent paste 
and Brusho's for the background.
The sea horses have been stamped and water-coloured 
with zigs and hi-lighted with mica powders.
The shell has been stamped and sprinkled with Bistre powders.
The sand is paste, micro beads and coloured with Lindy powders.
The coral has been die cut from several colours of Brusho card.
The ribbon has also been coloured with Brusho's.
I had such fun playing with techniques and enjoyed making my tag.
I had a chuckle after I had finished, looking at the stenciled anchor, 
which looks like it is heading for the seahorse's head!!!!
Thank you for finding the time to stop by...I always appreciate it x

I saw this tag while I was on vacation, but was unable to comment. I'm just thrilled that your win at STAMPlorations prompted me back here to congratulate you! You are stacking up the $ and hope you enjoy shopping, I know I will! I just adore how you so cleverly adapted the color palette with this tag. Your design is just wonderful, the stamps, the dimension, the gorgeous attention to detail. Love love and will be pinning. Big hugs, Autumn
