Splish Splash

Today is the day that I start my stint as a design team member of The Doodle Garden. Jennifer Nilsson is an amazing digital stamp artist and has graciously allowed me the opportunity to play with her creations.

For the next two weeks we are having an "Under the Sea Challenge" with some great prizes. Check it out and play along with the Design team Members.

Today's post  my project features her Little Seahorse Digi. It started as a card but I decided that I really wanted to create a page for our upcoming trip to Prince Edward Island with my daughter. I coloured the image with my copics (YR23, YR24, YR27, Y13, Y15, Y17, B32, B34, B37). I added some shimmer to his fins and spots using a Sakura clear star pen. I created the water using Echo parks Splash 6x6 pad, Bo Bunny Barefoot and Bliss 6x6 pad, and Best creations glitter cardstock. I cut these papers using my decorative scissors to give it a look of waves. I find that regular adhesive doesn't stick well to the glitter paper, so a tip is to use sookwang double sided tape. I cut out flourishes using my Tim Holtz Elegant flourish die to create my seaweed and also cut out letters using his Once Upon a Time die.


  1. I love this it is so different x

  2. I LOVE this! The water background is something I'm definitely going to have to try. I love the coloring on the seahorses. Beautiful! Accenting the little black dots with white was a brilliant choice. :)
