#89 Octopus Rockpool

The theme at One Stitch At A Time is Anything Goes. I chose the Octopus Rockpool digi by Claire of Hope Jacare at Stitchybear Stamps. I had so much fun colouring this image. I was waiting for a delivery of shells and my card was made for a few days before they arrived. They echo the shells on the backing paper perfectly. The yellow card is from Papermill and my card blank is by Craft UK. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and the 'water' is coloured with a stardust Sakura gelly roll pen. I cut round the edges of the rockpool and then raised it slightly over a Spellbinders circle nestie in silver card. The shells are by Beachcomber and the silver pebbles are by John Lewis.

The sponsor over at OSAAT this week is Creative Craft World so make sure you pop over to enter this one.

I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:
Alphabet Challenge - U is for Under the Sea
Frosted Designs - Die Cuts
Shelly's Images - Anything Goes
Hooked on Crafts - Anything punched or die cut

I'm going to a Christmas Craft Fair at 10:30 so I'll enter them in to the challenges when I get home. I'm going to spend lots of money I hope.

We also want to tell you about a Cyber Half and Half Monday sale on 28 November, 5AM to 5PM EST half the day for 50% off.
