Octopus AWAY!

 Are you looking for a fun, masculine card to create for a special someone?  This easy Steampunk themed greeting card is great for Father's Day or any day you want to surprise someone, or warn them of the impending octopus apocalypse (just kidding!).

Crackle Background Stamp
Small Cluster GeoMetric Stamp and Interlocking Circles from this set
Octopus Airship Stamp from this set
Black archival ink
White Pigment Ink
Various Scrap pieces of cardstock in white, purple-blue, blue-green,and yellow decorative patterned paper (in the example it was a Graphic45.
Foam Double-sided Tape
Small Star Embellishments


Create the card base from the blue green paper.  This one is a standard 5X7 sized card.  Cut the decorative paper about 1/8" smaller than 5"X7" and cut the purple-blue card stock another 1/8th" smaller than that one.  Using the black archival ink, stamp the crackle background first, then stamp the joined circles and the geometric cluster stamps randomly using the white pigment ink.

Stamp the Octopus Airship on the white card stock with the archival black ink.  Allow to dry and color in with your choice of medium (watercolor pens, oxides, pencils, etc).  Fussy cut out.

Layer the cards, adhering the patterned paper to the base card, then glue the decorative stamped blue card to the patterned paper (all should be centered).  Attach the fussy cut image using foam tape at a slight angle.  Add some star embellishments and you are done.

All ready to float away into an envelope.
