Octopus Shaker Card : "A Blog Named Hero" Cute Challenge Inspiration

 Hello again!

Today's inspiration for the current monthly challenge features the octopus from the Hero Art's "Need A Hand" stamp set.  How cute is he??? (Or she:)  Supplies are linked below (afil--thank you so much!)  Be sure to get your entry in soon as this challenge is nearly over!  Enter at ablognamedhero.com.

I started by die cutting the fancy porthole so I could frame my stamping area.  Then, I die cut two circles out of fun foam from the infinity set and set aside for them to puff back up.

Next, I diecut the circle for the background out of Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes paper, stamped and clear embossed, then colored with colored pencils and gamsol.

I cut an acetate circle slightly smaller than the porthole, then diecut the background (from the MMH Art Deco kit in 2019.)  I layered it on a pool colored card base, then built my shaker, gluing first the foam pieces together, then to the acetate, then to the bottom of porthole.  

I placed the shaker bits in the center of the stamped circle and glued down the shaker.  I added a heat embossed sentiment to finish it off.

Hope you will give it a try!  

Here are the supplies I used:

Take care until next time!
