Stampin Up! one Sketch Two Cards

I’m going through a craft block at the moment, we are trying to move house and it’s very stressful, it’s taking up a lot of my energy.

I found this sketch on Pinterest and thought I would give it a go in the hope of inspiration!

My next card used Seaside Notions and I stamped my seahorse on watercolour paper with Black Stazon Ink.

I used a water brush to add water to my seahorse then drop some ink in.  See my Youtube to watch how I did this.

To add a bow or not?
