Hi Everyone, my post today is for
I'm not one to do ATC's, BUT, here I am with my version. I just thought of the sea and looked through my stamps, then stamped 2 shells and the sentiment, I coloured the shells in, so they could be seen.
I found a snippet of paper I could cut down to the size of the ATC and remembered I had a cut file of swimming fish, which I made smaller in Silhouette and cut it to make a stencil. I used one of the cut out fishes to add to the die cut leaves in the corner, which is also a cut out from a larger die.
I die cut the seahorse, out of another small piece of the paper, but it didn't look good, so I cut it again out of cream card and coloured it slightly. The darker first one was used as a shadow. I then decided to add some twine and made it into a Figure 8 knot, that is used while sailing. (That's what it said in the instructions on how to tie it.) In the end, I am quite pleased with how it looks.

Fabulous ATC love the background and die-cut seahorse and the knot looks brilliant -they maybe small but it's amazing what you can actually fit on
You really made a stunning little ATC here! I love all the fish, the shells and especially the colorful little seahorse! Great idea for the nautical knotted twine too!
So cute 😊
Got to be truthful Faith, I am slightly scared of ATC's they are so small I wonder how you all fit anything on but you have and its just gorgeous. Love the background too.xx
A seahorse is a perfect choice for an ATC, Faith! This one is fantastic and you've given him a wonderful sea habitat and a great punny sediment! Hugs, Darnell
It's a beautiful card Faith, I love the seahorse, and what a super background, Kate x
Oh wow, fabulous ATC, so pretty. I love the knot in the string and your cute seahorse.
Fabulous! Love the background you have created.
A great design Faith, all the different elements work really well together and I love the colours xx
Wow FIth this is really fabulous .. I love it !! I started making ATC’s in April and now I am really into it .. so my question is … do you actually trade the ATC’s you make? I’d be more than happy to trade for this one if you are interested 🙂
Beautiful ATC--love the seahorse!
A super ATC Faith, a great background and lovely seahorse.

Fabulous ATC Faith. Love the little fish you use for a stencil and also added as a die cut. X
So beautiful Faith - I feel as if I'm snorkeling somewhere exotic! I love the shadow effect on the seahorse too. It gives the scene a lot of depth. Sorry to have gone a bit AWOL - it's that summer frenzy!! Vicky x
