Outlines - Seahorse

This week's challenge for the Outlines Design Team  is Lots of Layers, with a Product Focus on Smooch paints.  I layered up my card with varying shades of blue papers that I cut using a ric-rac edge punch to make waves at the bottom (seven layers there!).  Next I stamped the seahorse section from Split Layering Collage - Splash (H-796) twice and cut out the seahorse image and popped it up with foam tape, then layered it on three mat layers (that's five layers there!).  The image was colored with Copic markers, except for the dark teal fins and spots, which were painted with Smooch Ocean Soul.  I also painted a little Smooch Top Coat in the white portion of the eye.   If you haven't used Smooch paints yet, you should pick up a bottle - it has a very fine tip that makes it easy to get into small spots, plus it adds a nice shimmer!

The seahorse patterned paper is matted on shimmery silver card stock and then on top of navy blue shimmer card stock (that's three more layers!).  I added a few drops of light blue and silver Pearl Paint Pen in the fins and tail.  Here's a close up so you can see all those layers!
