Color Throwdown #493

The weeks keep rolling by so quickly during this favorite month of mine and it's already time again for another Color Throwdown Challenge. You are going to LOVE these beautiful colors - aqua, lime and white - that Broni has chosen! 

With inspiration from the seaside photo, I was immediately drawn to this older Hero Arts stamp set called Color Layering Seahorse.  I stamped some splatters from SU's Gorgeous Grunge set, then stamped the old map image from SU's The Open Sea set with Twisted Citron distress oxide ink. The edges were torn and sponged with the same ink.  Using the Mini Specimens stencil by TCW (Rebekah Meier Designs), I added texture with Liquitex light modeling paste.  The sentiment is white embossed with Altenew's Pure White opaque EP.  A trio of dew drops added the finishing touch!

STAMPS: Color Layering Seahorse (Hero Arts), Gorgeous Grunge (SU), The Open Sea (SU).
PAPER: Perfectly Plaid Rainbow pack by Lawn Fawn, White by PTI, ? light blue cardstock from my leftover pile.
INK: Twisted Citron distress ink; Old Gold, Fairy Dust, Silver Lining, Hayride, Falling Star, Ocean Drive, Siren Song dye inks by WPlus9; Versamark. 
DIES: Color Layering Seahorse (Hero Arts); Stitched Basic Edges (MFT).
