Hydrangea card and another sea horse!

Good afternoon friends, phew it's another very
hot day here again. Not that I am complaining !
I have been busy trying to keep cool in my 
craft room today. I finally made this card, lots of
'faffing'  about  too but it did get finished after
 several hours lol.

Over at 'Less is More' it's a recipe this time
'Use Something Tactile'

As soon as I saw this stamp I just HAD to
get it......well you all know that feeling I am 
sure ! I added a few extra flowers on top for
a bit of tactile....ness, I know that isn't a word,
but it sounds right to me ;)

I edged the top flowers with embossing
powder, then added yet more texture with a 
different embossing powder in the middle.
So lots of tactile...ness..I hope ;)

Come and have a peek anyway and enjoy
your weekend whatever you have planned.
I am just relaxing this time ;) Oops almost
forgot to say thank you so much for showcasing
 my card last week over at 'LIM' ;)

ps. Here is the last of my sea horse paintings.
(See previous posts for the other two)
This is 'junior', ....well I just had to do a 'pink'
one didn't I lol ;) I have added a small pic of
 them all at the bottom now too.

I just love those flowers; they are in our front and backgarden in so many different colours and styles...
So I just love your card; it looks as if you took one flower out of our garden; so real!

So much tactile-ness on your hydrangea Viv - it is superb! (I like that new made-up word!) The dimension really adds to the effect too. The seahorses pictures all look fab but I do love the colours on tis final one that you've made.
