Carousel Seahorse

     My term on the DT has ended over at Doodle Pantry but I just can't stay away from Laurie's digis.  And now I can enter the challenges over there again.  :-D


I chose to use the sketch from Digi Sketch
and the colors from CAS: Colors & Sketches

 

          Not only is the image from Doodle Pantry but so are the papers; both the solid and the patterned dp are from the same set as the seahorse image, as is the sentiment.  I die cut the pieces (except the sentiment is hand cut) and then used distress inks on all the edges.  I do love this purple/ turquoise/ green combo!

     Challenges:
Crafting by Designs
Crafting from the Heart
Crafting with an Attitude
Creative Moments
Fan-Tastic Tuesday
Hanna & Friends
Inspiration Destination
Lia Stampz
Not Just Cards
Party Time Tuesday

     Short and sweet post today.  I'm still having some back problems and can only sit to type up a post in brief spurts.  Can you believe I started on this post almost two hours ago?  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Love that seahorse and the darling sentiment. Pretty checked paper with the green bow. Sorry you are still having back problems. I think you passed them along to a couple of us blog friends. I was down and out but just for one day. Lots of muscle relaxers and rest and I healed nicely. Wishing you a better back real soon.

Back problems or not, it'd still take me at least two hours to make this! Hope your back start feeling better soon though.

Supe card using this image, NC! I just love the coloring of this fun carousel image. You did a fabulous job matching the CAS color and sketch. So glad you played along with us.

Is that a pre-colored image or did you do that fabulous coloring job yourself. I too love Laurie's images. She has such a great variety from which to choose.
Hugs & smiles,
