Rainbow Lady's Challenge 134 Its all new to me!

Happy New Year and here's my first challenge as a member of Cynthia's Design Team, of which I am very proud to be. Not that I ever need an excuse for a little "crafty" shopping I treated myself to some Inktense pencils from the Graphicus sale before Christmas, and I love them!
I started by stamping the  Graphicus Seahorse with versamark and then embossing with the Silver Bells WOW powder, love the holographic sparkle of this one. The Seahorse was then coloured in with the Inktense pencils and with a fine paintbrush, blended the colours together. The background is a mixture of Tumbled Glass, Shabby Shutters, Mustard Seed and Faded Jeans Distress inks. The seaweed from the same theme plate as the Seahorse was then stamped using Shabby Shutters and iridescent blue gems added. This was then mounted on to a piece of dark blue stardream card, and added to a white base card that had been tinted with Shabby Shutters and Faded Jeans distress ink around the edge. The Seaweed was stamped out in Shabby Shutters, along with some in versamark and embossed with the gorgeous Silver Bells  powder again. As you all know I love Seahorses and they will be making a appearance regularly I'm sure LOL. Elizabeth x

Oh this is just fabulous. Love all the colours and the fab blending. I told myself I could do without this stamo set now I'm not so sure.It's so much better than the seahorse stamp I've got. Roll on Glenda's new store.

Elizabeth, your seahorse and the background are so gorgeous. One thing I like about reading challenge posts is that I learn of new-to-me products. Your Inktense pencils made the seahorse extra beautiful.
