Seas Today

Hello my friends.

These hot days of summer make me think of water.


I happened to have some alcohol ink backgrounds that looked like water to me
so I stamped some coral and added these little Memory Box seahorses 
to swim in the sea.



Also adding it to the DTGD17 Challenge at Splitcoaststampers.
It's a challenge for Fan Club Members there.


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

What a wonderful card to mentally take us to the cool serenity of the beach. Such a clever use of the beach elements set off by those amazing layered alcohol ink pieces. Love it!
