Undersea with Freshly Made Sketches!

Hello, Hello!

It is a fabulous week as it is the first week of summer vacation!  The stress factor as dropped dramatically, :) .  Judy has a fantastic Freshly Made Sketches sketch for us this week.  A sea theme seemed to be appropriate for the beginning of summer!

 I adore this stamp set!  Guaranteed to get a laugh out of any recipient!  The set, Octopus Face,  is from Technique Junkies. If you are wanting to purchase this stamp, you can save 10% with code TJ10LeeAnn

Here is the fab sketch~

My ocean water was made with Ken Oliver Colorbursts (yep, you can save 10% on these too!).  
To give some depth and flickering shadows to the sea water, I stamped the Technique Junkies Stained Glass stamp on acetate in black ink, then stamped, using the acetate, onto the watercolored background.
The octopus is colored with Copics and the sentiment was masked and heat embossed as two separate sentences.  One is embossed on vellum. I found two pieces of scrap paper in orange for the banners.
Check out the rest of the inspiration from the rest of the oh so talented Design Team at Freshly 
Made Sketches, then link up your take on this sketch!
See you in the gallery!  

I am linking up my card to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-'Anything Goes'.

Have a blessed week, All!

  1. This made me laugh so hard. I absolutely love it!!

  2. Your ocean inkiness is fabulous but I can’t stop laughing at the sentiment!

  3. Love it - the card and the sentiment - it actually makes the smile stick to my face!! :)

  4. I am so not a fan of octopus, but I'll admit that I laughed out loud when I saw this! For me the real star of this card is that colorful background!

  5. Ha! Love this sentiment and love that background! Such a fun card.
