You Octopi My Heart Card

Hello. Today I am sharing a card using images from Time For Tea Designs using clear stamp sets Shell Phone and Mermazing. I purchased a set of Arteza real brush markers a while ago and thought this was the perfect card to try them out.

To start the card I took a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock and prepped it with an anti static powder tool. I then stamped the images with a Wow embossing pad and sprinkled with Wow Metallic Platinum super fine embossing powder. I used my heat tool to melt the embossing powder.

Next I coloured the images using the Arteza brush pens. Once this was done I cut the images out using my scan n cut machine and set them to one side.

I wanted to do some ink smooshing for the background. I scribbled some of the Arteza pens on to my glass mat and sprayed each colour with a little water. I used another piece of Bristol cardstock. I took one of my cello bags that I use to send my cards in and this is what I used to transfer the colour. I pressed the piece of cellophane into the first colour of pen ink then pressed it on to the card, moving it around a little to get the effect I wanted. I repeated this with each colour until I was happy with my background. I also splattered a little of each colour with a small paintbrush and set it aside to dry.

I heat embossed the sentiment to match the embossing of the sea creatures and then adhered the creatures to the background with a tape runner. I added some sequins from little things by Lucy with some liquid glue to complete the card.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you like the card. Take care for now. Katrina.
