Today is the start of a new challenge theme at
The theme is "Under the Sea", which sounds wonderful
since it's 105 degrees outside right now.
What could possibly be better than a seahorse?
I had one of these lovelies colored up in the jewel tones of purple,
blue green, and yellow green. Then I thought this horsey needed an
unconventional color scheme like pink and gold. WAY outside
of my usual coloring comfort zone, but I think it works.
I scored some new bits and pieces of ephemera that were perfect
for this project. I used a journaling card for my background. I think it's from
7 Gypsies. I paired it up with some die cuts and a bit of the highly coveted
Graphic 45 Voyage Beneath the Sea paper.
This gorgeous image is available in the Aurora Wings shop.
This version was created using the exact same embellishments,
but with the journal card in a different color to match my seahorse.
