Happy Octopus

Happy Friday!
Is this heat ridiculous or what? Most summers we only crack 90 for a little while around the end of July/early August. This weekend we're supposed to be over 100! That's just wrong! So maybe my card won't really cool you off, but at least you can think cool, watery thoughts when looking at it.

For my watery blue band, I used a brayer and a blue rainbow pad to add the color. Then I dropped some water from a little paintbrush for more of the watery look. When it dried, I stamped the little bubbles with permanent black ink.
The happy octopus was colored, cut out and I added some googlie eyes to him. He’s inside a circle frame I used Spellbinders circle dies to cut and stamped the greeting twice around it. I added some very small dew drop like bubbles for a little extra something. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Stay cool!

Too Cute! I love the googlie eyes and bubble beads! What a unique way to "add" water! I also love how the circle looks like a lifesaver!
