Here's my card for this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. With it being so hot around here, a card with an ocean theme seemed appropriate!
Reverse Confetti's Seaside stamp set my focal image. The octopus was stamped in green ink, then cut with the matching die. I used foam tape to adhere the octopus to a pale blue die cut tag. After knotting a piece of pale green grosgrain ribbon through the hole at the top of the tag, I placed the tag on a piece of chevron patterned paper. I stamped the set's "inking about you" sentiment on a turquoise strip punched with a wave border punch, then tucked the strip beneath the octopus image. A trio of aqua sequins scattered around the image completed the design.
