Alpha Dictionary - S

Oh my gosh, I really am cutting it fine this time......didn't think I was gonna make it at all for this fortnight's Alpha Dictionary challenge over at The Craft Barn as time feels like it's flown past.......did somebody steal a week?
The letter was S & we had to include a shell......so I chose seahorse....and I based my page on some ATC's I made last year. I used torn book paper for the background then swiped with some blue & beige paint. Next came a layer of cheesecloth then I added lots of die cut elements. The seahorses were cut on my Scan n Cut then covered with crackle paint, once dry I dabbed with distress ink. The seaweed was cut in assorted card, as were the seashells then lastly I added some die cut bubbles & some clear gems.
I'm loving this challenge....but next time I won't be leaving it as late.......famous last words, eh?
Rightio, I'm off to bed! Hope you're all having a lovely weekend.....thanks for calling!
