Green Seahorses.

Hi all
Well as some of you will know I have recently started attending the fabulous workshops that the lovely Maria Simms runs in Shrewsbury.  I have a great time and have met some lovely ladies.
If you ever fancy joining in with these workshops in Shrewsbury just pop over to Maria's blog where you will find her email address - then just drop her a line - you will have a brilliant time. 
Indeed if you would like to join one of the other Clarity Workshops just pop over to the Clarity Website or the Clarity Stamp Challenge blog where you will find more details.
So I have made a card to enter into this month's challenge over at Clarity Stamp Challenge which is Monochrome.
So here is my very green monochrome card.
I made a background on the card blank using the seaweed stencil using Lettuce adirondack.
Then for the first layer I used my Gelli Plate and two different stencils, the Dotty Wave background and the seaweed stencil.
Next I stamped my two seahorses on to white card and again used the seaweed stencil. I trimmed my card to the size I wanted which left me with two little pieces of seaweed/dotty wave background so I added those behind the image.

I coloured the two seashorses with my Distress Ink Markers and then made two flowers using the Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers Die.  
As a final couple of touches I added two pieces of the fabulous Keep Calm and Carry On ribbon from Crafty Ribbons and a gorgeous green pearl pin from my lovely friend Mandy at A Sprinkling Of Glitter.

I am really pleased with how this has turned out and I hope you like it too.
Please let me know what you think as all comments are gratefully received.
