Something about an octopus waving hello at you makes me giggle. So Sea of Textures is the only brand new never-seen-before stamp set I have from the new catalog, but before the last one ended I did buy Lemon Zest, Beautiful Day, and at the last minute Beautiful Bouquet (which is where I got the "hello" from). I won't be doing another new catty order until July so Sea of Textures is this year's featured set for me. (Last year it was Orange Blossom, which I still can't believe it retired after one year!) Anyway, I've inked up this octopus three times and two of those times he was purple. Today he's black, and you can't tell but he's covered in Wink of Stella for some sparkle.
Octopi are animals, right? Because the Paper Players challenge is all about the animals:
I used the sketch from Sunday Stamps:
To be honest I wish I'd used the Marbled background on my card front or something else and then left the oval behind the octopus plain, but my kiddo was waking up from his nap so I had to finish fast and I couldn't change it around.
Check out the Color Throwdown for this week:
I used Coastal Cabana for the aqua color; I've been mildly obsessed with it since it was announced that Coastal Cabana was returning to the SU! color lineup. (I've done a couple of scrapbook layouts that haven't been shared here yet, plus a few cards that have been shared here.)
Hope you have a great day, y'all. I've been fighting a cold all week and it is no fun, though Ryan thinks the noise I make when I blow my nose is super funny. At least he's amused?
