New Challenge #107 At Glitter N Sparkle

Yay it's that time of week,
and this week I have been a busy bee,
and have 2 wonderful cards for you.
This week I wanted to incorporate things 
into my Projects that I have
lying around the house. 

The Theme at

Use Some Orange

My 1st project for this week is:-

Oingo Octopus Digi Stamp 
from Kassel at Stitchy Bear Stamps
(one of our sponsors)

To began used a precut Shaped White Card
Which I used as a template to cut out the shape from
Mid Blue Textured Weave Card
and using a Large Frilly Square #1 Die
(Go Kreate).
I cut cut out a window.

Next I printed off the Image on
White DC Paper,
and coloured it in 
using my Promarker Pens.

  Octopus -  Mustard (Eyes + Suckers)
                                    Coral (Mouth + Under Tentacles)
Spice (Highlights)
Royal Blue (Hat)
Black (Face)
Fish - Pastel Beige
Cool Grey 3
Seascape - Ivory (Seashell)
Buttercup (Sand)
Pear Green ( Seaweed)
Moss (Seaweed)
Pastel Green (Sea)

I added an extra Fish to the
top left of the Card.

Next I used a 'Happy Birthday' Rubber Stamp
(Hampton Art Stamps)
with Whisper White Ink
(Stampin' Up!).

To finish my Card off I took some pieces of 

Plastic Seaweed from a Fish Tank Ornament
(that I have lying around in a cupboard)
and tied them together and wrapped some
Metallic Green Mesh
around the bottom.
And I attached this to the Card with a 
Metal Swirl Brad
The Mesh to symbolise a Net,
and the Swirl a Shell.
Finally I added an Anchor Charm
(Bev's Card Charms).
