Spots And Stripes / Circles and Straight Lines Challenge

Created for Challenge 24 
Spots And Stripes / Circles and Straight Lines Challenge 
At the Gorgeous Artful Times hosted by Neet and Von
I began with plain white card, used a circle as 
a template and drew some lines in pencil below.
Painted this using Aqua markers, water and brush.
Once dry, cut out to make the globe shape with striped stand.
Also used the off cuts to make some stripey seaweed and a 
hole punch to cut out little spots/air bubbles.
The Seahorse I stamped first (creative expressions stamp)
then painted and cut out. 
Glued the elements together, added a small circle of card.
Will use the finished design as a decoration for my jar.
