Crafter's Companion February challenge-CAS cards

This month's Crafter's Companion Challenge Blog theme is CAS cards (Clean & Simple).  The focal image is from from Sheena's newly released Hidden Stars set. The background water is effect is made by her Embossing Folder 5" x 7" - Water Ripple


All the coloring was done with Spectrum Noir Markers onto Luxury Centura Pearl Printable Snow White Cardstock. For the background, I used the wide tips and Spectrum Noir Brush Nibs of different shades of True Blue and Blue Turquoise to create waves:
BT1, BT2, BT3, TB1, TB2, and TB3.


To color the seahorse, I colored direct to the cardstock, dabbing lightly in small areas. The markers blend so easily on the pearl cardstock. Colors used:
  TB1, LV1, LV2, and LV3.





I cut out the the seahorse, edged him with a black water-based marker, popped him with Double Sided Adhesive Foam Circles, and added some self-adhesive accents from my stash for the bubbles.


On the inside, I put a strip of the embossed layer.
