The Craft Barn Dictionary Challenge -- S with a shell included

I have chosen Seahorse for my word and I love doing seaside type art, so this one was a pleasure to do. I distress inked the background, die cut the seaweed and seahorse and coloured them with distress ink. The seahorse I put a layer of crackle glaze on top to give it some texture. I put a few clear dew drops on for bubbles, and added a strip at the bottom for the shells.

It's obvious you like seaside art. Your tag shows it. Love the colors and those bubbles are wonderful. Perfect tiny little shells at the bottom.

Your tag is incredible, Wendy. Seems you had NO trouble meeting the twist that gave me such fits. I simply adore your seahorse, and love how you explained the way you put this tag together. It's a genuine beauty!
