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:
