CTD96 Octopus



As soon as I saw the CTD colors this week, I jumped on making this card. These are SOOOO right up my alley. Love them together! I used my OCL Whale of a Tale set. She's stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with copics, I added some freckles on her cheeks with a white gel pen, and added Stickles to her spots and in the center of the flower. The saffron circle and cool caribbean scallop circle are both up on foam tape. The stitches were done with a piercing tool, SU mat pack, and some white waxed linen thread that I colored with my YR04 Copic. I used Mercy's sketch #77 again...love it!

Have a great day!
