Barbie Mate

When I saw this fun stamp from Sasayaki Glitter, I couldn't help but color him up. This one is called Barbie Mate. I have never colored a seahorse before so I had to look it up to see how their colors are. 

I started by using Copic markers to color the image. I then used distress ink to watercolor the background. Since I colored the background in after I finished the image, I didn't create a mask for it. I used watercolor brushes to paint the background with distress inks, then stamped the sentiment and popped the image onto the plaid paper using foam tape.

Supplies: Stamps: Sasayaki Glitter (barbie mate) YNS (sentiment)
Papers: Strathmore (bristol white), coordination (white), Lawn Fawn (orange plaid)
Inks: Distress Inks (salty ocean, peacock feathers, cracked pistachio-distress oxide), SU black, Copic markers (Y11, Y15, Y19, Y24, YR04, E33,#35, E37, C1, C3, C5, C8, BG0000, BG32, BG13
Accessories/Tools: Lawn Fawn (Stitched Circle die)
