Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Nautical/By the Sea

The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge theme for this week is Nautical/By the Sea.

I am so enjoying using paint and ink with lots of sticky-on bits. Mixed Media is such a satisfying medium to work in. Must do more :)
When I thought of 'By the Sea' I thought of those large rock pools that are left when the tide goes out and the wee Seahorses living in them. They are the most intriguing member of the animal kingdom, 'Something Special'. After all, they are the only animal where the male gives birth! Well, really he is only the incubator. My Seahorse is expelling bubbles, I am positive they don't do this IRL.

Glossy accents on the bubbles and the shell.

Thanks for stopping by.
