Summer Splash

This was so fun to create.  I made this for the Cards for Men Challenge 11 - No Paper.  No designer paper that is.  :)  And CS141.
I had just seen this technique and thought I would try it.  Okay, So I took a piece of whisper white and sponged it with tempting turquoise then edged it with the pacific point.  Then I wet my right hand and flicked the paper.  That creates the water spots.  :)  Used wild wasabi then old olive and ran it through the Big Shot for the strip.  The color on the octopus was add when I thoughtlessly layed it down to add the glue.  So, to fix it I spritzed the ink on the mat and lightly dabbed the octopus in it.  Turned out really fun I think.

Happy Tuesday!

The octopus is heat embossed with wild wasabi embossing powder.

Stamps:  Summer Splash, All Holidays
Ink:  tempting turquoise, pacific point, old olive, wild wasabi & black
Paper:  whisper white and old olive
Accessories:  Nestabilities, spots and dots folder
