Mer-Sea




Hello everyone! Here is the card that I made for the Tacky Tuesday Challenge. This month the challenge is to use a sea creature and use the word SEA somewhere in your project. I cut the octopus from B is For Boy at 4 inches. I used a purple colored pencil and white gel pen to do some highlighting and stamped the face with a Peachy Keen face. I made up the Mer-Sea saying using 2 different stamped sentiments and put that on an oval tag and mat. I am also going to enter this into Getting Cricky's Simple Sunday challenge which is to include a face on your project. Have a great day!
