Happy Friday! Last day ’til the weekend!!! (Can you tell I’m excited?)
For my card today, the oh-so-cute octopus from Lawn Fawn’s Octopi My Heart is graduating from school. Lol! Okay, I know fish travel in schools, not octopi (or at least I don’t think so), but I couldn’t resist. 🙂 Okay, moving on.
I first stamped the graduation cap from Your Next Stamp’s Get Your Fiction On with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I masked that and then stamped the octopus and bow tie. I colored my image with Copics, added some details with a white gel pen, and cut it out with my ScanNCut2.
To create my underwater scene, I ink-blended Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, and Tumbled Glass distress inks onto Bristol smooth paper. I flicked on some water and blotted it with a towel. The frame was die-cut from a panel of white cardstock with Sizzix’s Fancy Labels dies and backed with acetate and foam tape. I adhered the octopus to the ink-blended panel, added some Mermaid Lagoon Sequins from Craftin Desert Divas, and topped it with my shaker frame before adhering the shaker to my white card. I heat-embossed the sentiment from Get Your Fiction On in silver onto blue cardstock, which I bannered and popped up onto my card.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
