Footloose Seahorse Simple Card

If you have been a follower of my blog for any length of time, you will know that I am totally uncomfortable and incapable of making a simple card.  I love the look, but have not developed an “eye” for the clean look.  And believe me that it does take an eye.

So I did what I always do when I want to learn something new.  I took an online class!  So, ta da……. here’s my simple card.


Using the stamp set from the Close to My Heart Footloose Workshop on the Go and the cool technique shown in the Footloose Workshop on the Go Guide, I inked the stamp in Crème Brulee Ink and then sponged on Sorbet, Lagoon and New England Ivy Inks with a sponge dauber.  Then I stamped my cute seahorse onto CTMH textured card stock (retired).  The sentiment (from the Zoology Stamp Set) was stamped in Cocoa Ink.  I finished up the card with a Mocha Opaque for my cute seahorse’s eye and Voila! my card is finished!

Here is a close up of my seahorse.



  1. This card looks great! I can't wait to get one for a birthday/some holiday1

  2. I think you've found your "eye"! Great card, Melinda :o)
