It was my turn to choose an image for myself and Choccy to use and once I saw this gorgeous image of Seahorses by Delicious Doodles I knew immediately it would be a perfect image for my wedding anniversary card for my hubby. Just look at how their little tails are linked together ...
I have always loved seahorses, they are such beautiful creatures and you see them in lots of different colours. I love the role reversal of the males giving birth to the babies and it is amazing to see them have hundreds and hundreds of them, like a little cloud of tiny seahorses. Check out this video on Youtube. The other really amazing this is that they choose a mate and stay with them for life. Can you see how perfect that makes them for an anniversary card?
This is a large 8” square card and I coloured the image using Promarkers & Flexmarkers choosing colours from the papers which are from the Animal Antics First Edition 8x8 pad. I used lots of Stickles glitter glue on the water bubbles, cut the image with a scalloped edge and distressed the edges with an ink pad.
The papers were layered together and I used Martha Stewart punches for the heart border and lattice heart. The sentiment is by Studio 313 and was cut using a Nestabilities die. The flower are all Prima’s held together with an American Crafts gem brad.
