Octopus notelets

Good Morning everyone.  

So today im sharing these 2 little notelet cards.  
Again brusho's in action, seeing as it took me a while to get into using them, they are my go to staple now, perfect for making unique backgrounds and papers.  Ive added a few cosmic shimmer pixie powders to the mix which have a lovely pearl finish, the 2 mix perfectly together. 




A6 cardblank.  A strip of brusho/pixie powder cardstock, layered onto navy cardstock, stamped sentiment in colbalt blue archival ink.  I die cut the octopus twice and layered up, a tip from a crafty friend, makes it more like chipboard and then coated it with starlights gold paint.  I backed the eyes with navy cardstock too.  I used glue gel to glue the octopus on after shaping him to add dimension.  He is pointing to the sentiment as i think its little details like that that tie a design together.  


Close up to show the purple pixie powder shimmer, i also added glossy accent water droplets.




Same as before but different colour mix of the brusho's and pixie powders. 



Close up.


These are fairly quick cards once you have made and let the backgrounds and starlight paints dry.  I used imagination crafts starlight paint 136 Rich Gold.  Apart from the navy cardstock its amazing to think this was all made from white cardstock. 

Thank you for stopping by and your comments this week.  I wish you all a wonderful weekend and happy crafting.  Emma
