Now, onto my creation!
I started out printing a digital stamp, by Whimsie Doodles, onto white card, just using my inkjet printer. I let the ink "set" for at least 12 hours before colouring it up, just so it doesn't smudge when I colour using my Spectrum Noir Markers. I used a colouring effect that looks great, when used on animals, instead of colouring in circles like I usually would, I dotted the markers on top of each other, blending from darkest to lightest that way. Once that was done, I set the little octopus aside, and went through my stash!
I grabbed a square card base, from the boys card making kit, these kits have everything you need (including envelopes,) to make a minimum of three cards! I then went through the patterned paper pad, Masculine and selected two fun papers. I stuck them on to more white card and doodled around the edges, using my favourite fine tip pen. I attached the image, and papers using double sided tape, added some purple braid, from this awesome trio (3 different ribbons, for $2!!!) I love that they are all so luxurious, and different! I then attached a button, from the masculine card making kit, as well as a button, enamel dot, and washi tape from my collection. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up, but Alacraft also has a selection of stamps!
