Paperworks Co.-Octopus 4 I adore!

Click HERE for the Whimsy Stamps Blog Hop

I am tired of snow and cold temperatures! I decided it's time to work with some bright colors...maybe it will help! I decided to use the adorable Octopus from "Aqua Amigos".

I wanted a sea themed designer paper and any kind would do. I found this one in my stash. To jazz it up a bit I used some scalloped vellum circles (used my Nestabilities) to mount each octopus on. The entire circle is raised just a bit with a dimensional dot adhesive. I felt it still needed something to bring it all together, so the silver brads and twine were just the ticket! Thanks for letting me share it with you...hopefully it brightened your day as well.


Supplies Used:

Stamps: Aqua Amigos-Octopus and Aqua Amigos Sentiment "sending oceans of good wishes"

Papers: bright orange and teal card stock, plain vellum, sea themed designer paper of your choice

Copic Markers: YG03, YG25, YG67, V000, V01, V15, YR12, YR04, YR18, BG01, BG05

Misc. Embellishments: 4 large silver brads, hemp twine, sea themed charm, dimensional dots, white glaze pen (for dots in the eyes)
