Lavinia World Challenge #23

Hello Lavinia World Friends!!

Today is the start of a new challenge on the Lavinia World Challenge Blog:

Lavinia World Challenge #23

Here is my card for this challenge:


Broken China distress oxide
Evergreen bough distress oxide
Twisted Citron distress oxide
Tumbled Glass distress oxide
Wow Sea Mist embossing powder
White card stock
Watercolor paper
Black gem
DL.ART Blue Hue Tail from the Mermaids Tale Second Edition Crinkle Ribbon

For this 5 inch by 7 inch card I started my making the base of the card with White card stock.  I took a piece of water color paper, Sebastian stamp and VersaMark and stamped the seahorse in the center of the paper.  I used the Wow Sea Mist embossing powder and heat set it with my heating tool.  I took the Broken China, Evergreen Bough, Twisted Citron and Tumbled Glass distress oxides and blended them around Sebastian with my blending brushes.  I spritzed the paper with water and when it dried I added it to the card base.  I took a Black gem and added that to Sebastian for his eye.  I took some DL.ART Blue Hue Crinkle Ribbon and glued it to the card and made a bow at the top of the card.

The theme for Lavinia World Challenges is always "Anything Goes" using a stamped image (sorry no digi stamps, but rather rubber or clear stamps are perfect).  The winner will receive a $15 Gift Certificate to Lavinia World.
