Guest Designer Samantha~Octopus Got Attitude!

Hello, hello! Samantha Ziegenfuss here with a fun card to share with you all today.

Much like this octopus I often wish I had 8 arms to smack people with and that is what inspired my card.

Let's jump right in!

To begin you will stamp and heat embossed the flying octopus stamp onto watercolor paper cut to 4" x 4".



Paint the octopus first and then do wet on wet watercolor painting in the background; adding more color and layers until you're happy.





Add a generous amount of shimmer to the entire thing.


Cut your octopus panel with a basic wavy stitched border die and apply a 1.5" x 4" strip of glitter paper to a white 4" x 4" note card. Adhere your panel so that it overlaps the glitter paper.







Stamp and clear heat embossed your sentiment to pink cardstock; trimming it down into a strip and gluing it to the left side of the card below the octopus.








Finish by adding a few gems.







Thanks so much for checking out my card. I have had a lot of fun guest designing and I hope to see you again.

Until next time,
Samantha
