Connie-Distressed Sea Dragon

This adorable seahorse image is by
Jennifer Nilsson for  

and is titled "Sea Dragon"

I began with a distressed
water background on which I stamped the dragon.
Colored him in with Copic markers, added Stickles on his wings?
and put some small bubble gems for air bubbles.
"Macarena Corner" die by memory box and
layers cut with SB "Matting Basics" dies.


  1. beautiful card! love how you colored the image/background - those colors are great

  2. Oh this is gorgeous! Stunning background - what a fabulous idea to use a Distress Ink technique to make a watery background. Fabulous colours too and I love the shimmer on his fins.
