We're having a really loud thunderstorm here in Wales and it's teaming down with rain needless to say every time there is lightning I'm sat here with my hands over my ears sio I don't hear the thunder!
I made this card earlier using one of Lily Boos fabulous images from The Under The Sea collection. Now I'm no colourer so I have to try and detract your eyes from my colouring! I printed out this cute octopus on White card and then twice on pink card. I coloured the white layer with chalks and some stickles and cut the octopus twice from the pink leaving only 4 arms/tentacles on the top layer and pop dotted them. I pierced her ears lol and gave her a nice set of hoop earrings (jump rings) and a siver bead necklace and a nice pink lacy hat. When I first saw this image I thought with all those arms she was born to shop and as you can see Octavia is all dressed up and off shopping with a bag on every arm! (for the bags I cut down some confetti handbags from my stash to make them smaller. I wanted to put born to shop as a sentiment but my printer is playing up so I found this Love To Shop brad in my stash. Background papers are from Pink Petticoat printed on pink card and an adhesive lacy border.
Pop over to Lily Boos as there are some gorgeous images being adde d all the time and you just print and let your imagination do the rest!!
Thanks for looking and see you soon!
