A Sea-horse Valentine!!!

Hello Friends,
With the start of February the blog land is buzzing with Valentine themes, so ,not be left behind I too came up with Valentine card. (There are few more to come in few days )

Well this one is not with the conventional red/pink colors, hearts or color scheme associated with Valentine's day. This one is with sea horses! I have always found them mystical and beautiful and somehow I wanted to make Valentine card using it. And one more reason that somewhere in my mind I was associating Valentine day with them was , I love the fact that male sea horses carry the eggs and not the female ones! That I find it so sweet and adorable to do for your partner. Just wondering if possible for humans also:)

Ok...enough of me turning philosophical, here is the card.....

The sea horse stamp is from my kids stamp set (He generously let's me use his whenever I need it :)) and the heart shaped sentiment and tiny heart bubbles are from SSS Heartfelt Notes. The waves were created by cutting vellum and then coloring and lining with silver stickle. Sea weeds and other details are hand drawn. I added in few details to the heart bubbles and sea horses using while gel pen.
I added a burlap border from Itsy Bitsy to finish off the card.

There were many firsts for me with this card. I used the mirror stamping technique for the sea horse and I think this would me my most layered card till date. Usually I stick to minimum layers.

So that's it from me today. I love to read your comments, please do leave some love.

Have a great week ahead!!!

  5. Such a cute, cute card. I am a big fan of sea horses.
    Thanks for visiting me - it made my day.

  6. Great card Kavita - and I too love seahorses. Sea dragons are also very beautiful - they just glide around wafting their leafy tendrils - very much like sea horses (same family) but wearing lacy clothes :)
