Octobat

Today I have a fun card for you...
well it was fun to make :)

you may remember this paper that I made a little bit ago for a smeared Ink prject...well here it is again...in another smeared ink project...ha ha perfect matches what can I say...

I used my new Creature feature image Octobat
I colored her with markers and pencils, I then added some puffy paint...and just kinda played around making swirly seaweed like stuff....like I said it was fun to make...

I had several challenges in mind...
first is the Forever Night challenges...it is to use mythical women...ya she's mythical...
Next is the Graphicat Sketches...self explanatory...
then there is Haunted Design House...carnival of Curiosities....thus the freak show and again the Octobat...
then there are a few anything goes challenges (that I love) Paper Playtime, Stamps R Us
and at Order of the Opus Gluei they have a Seaside challenge
and Hooked on Craft Challenges challenges us to use things with wings.

Your blog is fun! You made me giggle with Vampire Bill and Eric (double swoon) and the baby fruit/veggie ticker is pretty cute - congrats and sorry you have to be on iron but glad you are to keep you strong.

Now, about this card - oh my gosh, it looks like you enjoyed yourself. Poor girl, I think she knows what you wrote about her and is a bit stunned! Great card, fun, and a little off the wall (which is ALWAYS a good thing).

Thank you for finding us at Opus Gluei and sharing, now you have to try and stop by for more challenges!
