Retarte Challenge #84

Hello Blogging Buddies,

Today is the start of the Retarte Challenge (or Challenge Yourself) #84 on the Stampartpapel Blog.

The sponsor for this challenge is Doodle Pantry and I used the Carousel Seahorse image for my card.


Doodle Pantry Carousel Seahorse image
Copic markers
Various paper from my stash

For this A2 card I started by printing out the Doodle Pantry Carousel Seahorse image onto watercolor paper and then colored in the image with Copic markers.  I then cut out the image using the Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Mats: Rectangle die, I inked the edges with blue ink and then mounted that onto a piece of watercolor paper that I watercolored and then spritzed with Perfect Pearls Mist Biscotti. I mounted this onto some green card stock.  I cut out some green paper with the Waffle Flower Yippie die and added it to the card.  I absolutely love the look on the seahorses face!

Be sure to stop by the Stampartpapel Blog to see the other great creations made by the Design Team!

Now it is your turn to create something for the Retarte Challenge #84!

I hope I have inspired you to create something fun today!
