Seas the Day!


 Remember how in my last Tiddly Inks post I said I loved the newer sea themed stamps?

Well this one was a particular favourite of mine and I just couldn't resist it.

It's called Octopi my Heart, and I just love it's quirkiness, plus it's sooooo cute!

I coloured it with my Distress Ink markers and I already knew in my head what colours I wanted for the Octopuses and I think it suits them really well, I also knew that I wanted to make a shaker card with it, I don't know why, but for some reason it screamed SHAKER CARD at me lol.

It does come with it's own fab punny sentiment which reads 'You Octopi my Heart', but since I didn't want a love themed card, I substituted another punny and sea themed sentiment that I thought went brilliantly with it.

I really like the way it turned out, originally I was going to use sea themed papers, but I actually really liked the colours in the papers I used and there was enough of a sea theme with the image, sentiment, die cut and charms, to not need the addition of themed papers I think, somtimes it's nice to think a little outside the box.

I'm popping this into the


as well to give an idea of the range of my style.

Have a lovely day! :) xx
