Color Throwdown

Hey Color Throwdown fans! I'm hosting this week's challenge and was inspired by this beachy photo to use dark red, blue, golden yellow and white as the color palette! 

Here is my take on it...

I started with Hero Arts fun Color Layering Seahorse stamp set with matching dies.  After smooshing some Mermaid Lagoon distress ink on the background, I then added modeling paste with a stencil.  

I'm using the layout from the current Fusion Card Challenge.  Because of the seahorse image's orientation, I flipped the corner collage element to the right side. 

Here's my enablers list:
STAMPS: Color Layering Seahorse (Hero Arts).
PAPER: Ranger watercolor cardstock; Black Licorice (MFT); White (PTI).
INK: Versamark; Mermaid Lagoon distress ink; Fairy Dust, Silver Lining, Falling For Blue, Falling Star, Hayride, Gala Red - all pure color dye inks by WPlus9.
DIES: Seahorse (Hero Arts); Fishtail Flags Die-Namics (MFT); All Framed Up (Reverse Confetti).
MISC: Clear dew drops, Liquitex light modeling paste; TCW Mini Specimens stencil (a Rebekah Meier design): Pure White Opaque embossing powder by Altenew.

It's a new month, so that means we get to announce a new guest designer!  A big welcome to the talented Tracey McNeely of In My Creative Opinion blog!  Can't wait to see what you create this month!
