Some Odd Girl Release: Mr Octopus

Hi there Oddies!

I'm here with a newly released stamp set from Some Odd Girl! Say hi to Mr Octopus!

He's such a fun, fantastic image to colour in, the possibilities are endless! I can't get enough of that huge moustache and monocle!

Here's the card I made


I wanted to create a fun sea/ocean effect in the background, so I used this cool Lifestyle Crafts embossing folder. I laid down some Tiffany Blue ink from Simon Says Stamp, onto the 'positive' side of the embossing folder, then ran the blue cardstock through my Big Shot. This gave the great tone-on-tone faux letterpress look. I love how the ink is only on the areas of the embossing that are concave. Such a fun look.

I layered that panel onto some Anchor-themed patterned paper, and tied some Orange Bamboo Twine 

 Here's a closeup
His monacle has glossy accents over it, the underside of his tentacles/arms are coated in a  layer of Wink of Stella Glitter, as is his sceptre.

Here is the inside :)

I *heart* punny sentiments.


Ok, now hop on over to the Some Odd Girl Blog to check out the rest of the DT's release projects, and then be sure to pick up the new sets! They're awesome!
