Guest Designer Post September 2019 - Seahorses

Hello everyone..

My final contribution for September goes under the sea.
What a great stamp set this is, I just wish I had more hours in the day to 'play' with it more.

I have used  the Mermaid Queen set, to create this under water scene.

Products used: Mermaid Queen stamp set, acrylic paints, thin acetate, permanent inkpad that will dry on acetate and shrink plastic, gold pen and thread.
I started with the background so that it would dry, while I did the rest.
Cut an A4 piece of acetate in  half, and squeeze several different
 colours of acrylic paint onto one half.
Place  the other half of the acetate on top and run your hand over it to spread the paint.
Pull the two sheets apart and an interesting pattern may occur.
. At this stage you could sprinkle a little glitter over while the paint is wet. I tend to make a larger acetate piece so that I can cut out the most interesting section.
  Put aside to dry thoroughly.
The seahorse was stamped and embossed, then coloured with a gold glittery pen and the tiny one is done with shrink plastic. Very cute it is too.
The shells are full size .
Once the background was dry, I stamped the seaweed onto the front with a permanent inkpad. (I used Staz-on) and the card was assembled.
Well that's it for this session. I look forward to showing more ideas in my next slot.
Thank you for your comments, they are always appreciated. 
Best wishes
