Seahorse Stew

Summertime, and the sea is calling. After a couple of divine mornings swimming in the ocean, we are in for a cooler change. The storm clouds are gathering and rain is expected tonight.

Meanwhile, back in my air-conditioned attic, I have been cooking up a creative storm with Kaisercraft’s Seahorse Embossing Folder EF234. I have had the folder for a while, taken it out on a number of occassions, but kept putting it back in the box as I was unsure what to do with it. The hardest step of any journey is always the first one. Sometimes you just have to begin, and the path will unfold before you.

On all the following 4 cards, the seahorse was first dry embossed onto white watercolour paper before various inks were sprayed over.
