Create beautiful seahorse framed art decor. This is a sponsored post with Xyron.
I love the beach, and I miss living on an island. I’m trying to fill that void by decorating my bathroom with a beach theme. I especially love sea horses, as you can see from THIS project and THAT project.
Today I’m going to teach you how I made this seahorse framed art. I made the seahorse “float” above the water to give this piece a 3-D look. Xyron adhesives helped me keep the seahorse as translucent as possible. Beautifully detailed stamps from Deep Red Stamps give this piece a professional look.

Take the unpainted frame apart. Clean and dry the glass. Use a pouncer to sponge the Sea Glass Paint over the glass. Set it aside to dry.
Use archival black ink to stamp the seahorse on the vellum. I just love all the detail in this stamp! Set the vellum aside to dry.
Stamp the seashells on cardstock using embossing powder. Sprinkle chalk white embossing powder over the stamped image, and shake off the excess. Set the powder with a heat tool.
Paint the frame using the Coastal Texture paint. I love the finish this textured paint has! I used blue and white to create a nautical look.
Place the glass over the stamped shells and trace the edges. Cut out the shells, and use a Xyron tape runner to attach the paper to the back of the frame. Reassemble the frame. The sea glass finish on the glass makes it look like the shells are underwater!
Fussy cut the seahorse from the vellum paper. Pull it through the Xyron sticker maker to add crystal clear adhesive to the back of the stamped vellum. Peel and stick the seahorse to the front of the glass on the frame.
My new seahorse art will fit in perfectly with the rest of my nautical bathroom decor! I can’t wait to use these beautiful stamps in more projects.
