A Male Room Thoroughbred

     The new challenge at The Male Room is Underwater, so come and join us with your masculine aquatic creations. I fell in love with this gorgeous seahorse, it's a black and white download of a Tattoo by a man named Tony.
     I printed the image on white card and began to colour with water colour pencils. I have used a mix of blue and green for the main body, then a little purple for the belly. The surrounding water is coloured with a light blue.
     Before mounting the image on pearl paper it has been spritzed with some pearl Glimmer Mist to give it a subtle sheen. It was then layered on pearl sea green and purple papers.
     Once dry I have used a gold glitter pen to highlight his eye, he looks a little mean and moody, he's just a seahorse with attitude.
     We have a DT call running at The Male Room so please come and show us your creations and add DT to your name if you would like to join us.

I would like to enter my seahorse in the following races:
Paper Minutes - Nautical



  1. Wow!!! This is magnificent. I love the mean, moody look and that gold glitter has really added to the attitude. Wonderful image, superb colouring. I think this is a fab guy card!

  2. A dark and moody image, which I'm sure any guy would love to receive. Great inspiration.

  3. A very mean and moody seahorse. Perhaps it should have been the female as if I remember rightly the male takes charge of the eggs once they are laid!
    Anyway this is perfect for our CAS challenge at Cardz4Guyz, thanks for sharing. :)

  4. Brilliant and perfectly clean and simple for our challenge. Thanks for sharing with us at Cardz 4 Guyz. I love how you coloured the seahorse it is so effective. Caz

  5. That's quite a fierce looking seahorse but I love it ! Fab card for our challenge

  6. Just love your seahorse- he has attitude! Great idea, beautiful colouring. What happened to the photo of the other sea horse? That made me laugh out loud! My horse would never have allowed me to do such a thing to her!
