You Octopi My Heart

Good morning, everyone! It's Cassie here, and I'm going to be sharing my last card as a Butterfly Reflections Ink design team member! It's such a sad thing, because I've had so much fun working with Vanessa and all the amazing products she carries, but I've loved my time as a part of her team :) For today's card I'm using some new Lawn Fawn products that are just SO sweet. Let's take a look.

I started this card by stamping the octopus from the Octopi My Heart stamp set in VersaMark onto some Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock. I used a dark gray embossing powder for him, and did the same with the sentiment. Then I took out my Distress Inks and did some ink smooshing over top of the embossed octopus.
Instead of going with ocean or sea colors, I decided I wanted more of a warm color combo. I used Work Lipstick, Dried Marigold, and Wild Honey to do this. In the end I did end up using a paint brush to add more color where needed. I also added a little splatter of each color with the paint brush. To add a finishing touch I die cut the I adorable arrow Valentine Borders dies. This is probably one of my favorite products from the newest Lawn Fawn release. It will be so fun for so many projects!

And that's my card! I hope you enjoyed it, and the other cards I made during my design team term. I know I had fun making them! Thank you so much for stopping by!

  1. This is adorable! Can I ask what "ink smooshing" is? I really want to try this out. Thank you.
