Fancy Free Sea Horse Tag

This fortnight's challenge from Tag Tuesday is a Nautical Theme.  I decided to use one of the  Clarity Crafts new design club dies to create this tag to use as a book mark.

I can guarantee being able to find a suitable quick background in one of the Designer paper pads.  This one is from the Indian Summer collection.  I glued a piece to a #8 manilla tag and trimmed the excess.
I used the aperture die to cut a piece of silver mirri card.
Next, I snipped the coral and the seahorse out of the aperture.
Before I added them to the card, I stamped the coral from the tropical fish stamp set in Versamark ink and heat embossed it in Copper embossing powder.
The die cut coral was then added.
I decided to add the rest of the coral from the aperture along the left hand side for balance.
The seahorse was coloured using Watermelon and Sunset Orange alcohol inks on a felt pad with a little blending solution.
This made the seahorse stand out when added to the tag.
To finish, I added three of Leonie's word stickers.  A little Tumbled Glass distress ink was rubbed over the top so they wouldn't be too stark against the background.

Wow, what a fabulous Tag, love that die.
I like how you used the mirri card for your elements, it reflects colours so well, great background too.
Thank you so much for playing along with my theme at Tag Tuesday x
