Sunday Stampers Challenge #259 Some Like It Hot

Not at the beach today though it's raining cats and dogs here in North Wales, so it's definitely a play day!!
Hels wanted to see some nice thick embossing going on this week over at the Sunday Stampers Challenge, and as I'd been playing about with one of Caroline's Seahorses, Mica Powders and Frantage, I thought it would be rude not to enter lol.
The doorhanger was painted in Mermaid (very apt) Fresco paint. The with an Imagination Crafts dotty stencil I sponged Versark ink through and used Shabby Blue opaque Frantage powder over that dots.
I spritzed the Seahorse with a mixture of Mica powders, and then added Shabby Blue Frantage along the backedge for texture, it's such a gorgeous colour in real life!

I then went around all the edges with Creative Expressions gilding wax in a mix of Patina, Pearl Moon and Golden Light, they are very addictive, thanks Trace lol. Finally I added the sentiment with Kaisercraft Grunge Font alphabet stamps, another new toy from Port Sunlight. Elizabeth x
