Rubber Stamp Tapestry Seahorse Garden Stamp Set

I absolutely love the Seahorse Garden Peg Stamp Set SAQ00006. I created the card base by cutting and 8 ½” x 11” piece of the The Paper Cut’s Lunar Blue Cardstock in half for an 8 ½” x 5 ½” card. I then scored a line at the 4 ¼” position and fold the card in half. That gives us an A2 card measuring 4 ¼” x  5 ½” card front..

I used the following Memento inks on this project: Large n Seahorse – Danube Blue #600; Tiny Seahorse -- #200; Starfish – Solid Tart #703; Anemone Flower – Lulu Lavender #504; and the Kelp closes out the place – Teal Zeal – #602.


To finish out the nautical theme, I used elements from Elizabeth Craft’s Shells Large set #1146. I cut out the dies using Elizabeth Craft’s White Soft Finish Card Stock, 85-pound weight. I colored the die cuts with Pan Pastels using 340.5 Permanent Red on the crab and 925.5 Pearlescent Orange on the shells.

Stampendous Fillly

I've been wanting to color this Filly Sketch for some time. I was playing with it several months ago when some of my students asked me to teach them how to color this with Copic markers. I don't know that I've mastered it, but I've certainly had fun playing with it. I used the following markers to complete this project.:

E53 Raw Silk
E55 Light Camel
E57 Light Walnut
E71 Champagne
E74 Cocoa Brown
E77 Maroon
E79 Cashew

E81 Ivory
