Ocean Critter Series Day 3: Create a Smile and Alcohol Inks


Hello crafty friends! Today is the third day in a week long series at my YouTube channel where I will be sharing cards and projects featuring ocean critters. I will also be having a small giveaway for those who leave comments on my videos. I will be using a variety of different ocean critters including today's octopus from Create a Smile Stamps. I am combining him with their fabulous dies. For my background I'm using Ranger Alcohol Inks on Bazzil vellum. I have a full description of the project in my video tutorial below.


This card is also for the Create a Smile monthly challenge. This month the theme is Blue. This is perfect for summer and my critter series. I used blue as the dominant color in my background and finished the card off with some of the lovely blue twine Christine uses to package up orders. 


I'm a huge fan of critter stamps as many of you may know and so several months ago I created a Facebook Group to connect with other critter lovers. You can join us at Critter Loving Cardmakers and Papercrafters. I'd love to see you enter the giveaway on my channel and come share with the group. Thanks for stopping by!
