I was happy to have some crafting time today and created a card that fits four challenges. My first inspiration is Tracey's pretty card for Muse #229 and making it an undersea design with my octopus die fits Memory Box: Go With the Flow. Making it a birthday card fits both Seize the Birthday: Anything Goes and the Wednesday Challenge Blog at Simon Says Stamp where Add a Sentiment is the challenge.
I'm trying to love my Oxide Distress Inks, but just don't feel the colors are as vibrant as Distress Inks. Owen the Octopus is cut from an Oxide Ink panel that was sprinkled with water, but I redid the balloons with Distress Inks. The strings for the balloons are extra octopus arms - I'm happy with the way this experiment worked!
A few raindrops add interest and the Paper Smooches sentiment finishes off this card.
Thanks for stopping by,
