animals for anything goes challenge DT piece

well it is time for another challenge,
 ...and this time the theme is animals
.. i don't really use animals but did find a seahorse .
.so here is my dt piece:
I started by creating an inky background, having stamped and masked off the seahorse
the seaweed..is made from wire and a few beads added..
I added some frantage, which is another new toy!!!
to try and create a sea effect...
the embossed frame was covered with paint..
and the image coloured with distress markers
make sure you pop across here
and see the other fab Dt makes:
to all my followers, thanks for popping by..
hoping i am on the mend..and will be popping back soon..
thanks for all the kind comments, they meant a lot!
have a fun and inky day!
