Underwater Mini Book Cover

I have always loved seahorses so when I saw 49 and Market's gorgeous Sea and  Sand paper pad, I knew it would be perfect for my mini book to scrapbook the few days I recently spent at the seaside.Then I saw they had matching seahorse stamps ! So of course I just had to get those too!

I decided to use the front cover of the pad as my mini book cover and covered it in gesso, then I had my doubts as it got a bit soggy poggy, but luckily it was ok when it dried out. I made a a background with watercolours and used embossing powder in olive for the seaweed. For the air bubbles I embossed some with clear and others with white. I watercoloured the lovely seahorses and stamped Indigoblu's bubble stamp all around the edges and heat embossed them  in white.

I finished off by spreading some bead gel over the bottom of the cover.This was my first play with the stamps and I am looking forward to using them again.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I would like to share this with the following challenges.
