Seahorse Joseph's Coat

This card was a combo challenge for the CPS Sketch #126 and the new technique challenge at Stamp TV called Joseph's Coat . Here is the sketch for CPS
Now I needed to pick out a solid stamp to do the Joseph's Coat technique. I hadn't inked up my seahorse, so I thought this would be a fun time to try. I then needed to do a little sea horse investigating as I couldn't really remember what color they were. The only thing I could remember from the aquarium was a not fun brown color. Well here are the two beauties I found online
How stinking colorful are these guys?
Here is my card
Didn't the color on the seahorses turn out fun? This card is a birthday card for my brother and I think he will like the fun multi colored sea horses. I also like the fun colored buttons. I picked up the clear buttons in a Basic Grey button pack that I got at the GKD store durning my last visit. I wasn't sure when I was going to use the clear ones, but they worked out neat on this card. The blue is from PTI enchanted evening (on a side note, I spilled my spring moss last night and there are a bagillion button in each color, LOL!!!).
I then found this Lime Rickey dsp from Basic Grey and I really thought it looked like water, so I added it right away. The last step was some corner rounding and gel pen work.
It's a good life!

Gorgeous card! I'm going to have to check out that technique because these are some technicolor seahorses and I love it.
