I love to do the challenges on Splitcoaststampers and the Saturday Inspiration Challenge is my absolute favorite! I like to try to recreate the product on my card so that it is immediately recognizable. I have a lot of fun with these challenges and have had some pretty funky results! Today’s Inspiration Challenge is IC338 ~ Charming Charlie. Our Guest Hostess Judy chose an awesome sight for inspiration! I finally settled on these cute Seahorse Sandals, I love the multicolored jewels!
For my card, I chose Chocolate Chip for my base card. I embossed a scrap piece of Cool Caribbean with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and randomly swiped with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. For the seahorse, I stamped the PSX Seahorse with Versamark and embossed in silver. I used Green Galore, Yo Yo Yellow and Barely Banana markers to color and then added Dazzling Diamonds for sparkle! I cut the seahorse out and mounted with pop dots on ovals I cut with Nestibilities Ovals. I stamped the letter F from the Stampin’ Up! alphabet set Monogram Sweet in Versamark and embossed with Silver embossing powder, then trimmed around it to fit it in the little circle. I cut the strips and adhered it all to my cardbase, done!
