ID: MC Feb/18 - Easel Fauna - The Tentacles Of Today card
Size: 5"w x 7"H (easel closed)

Created: February 26, 2018

I wanted to do another card for our Guild's journal... and since I gave them several floral pieces, and the topic is Floral & Fauna... I thought I'd do a fauna piece...




I found a quote on line that dealt with octopus... and wrote it out using a 3.8mm Parallel pen, Sumi ink and my Funky Neuland style lettering I designed a few years ago, on white cardstock. Doodled and colored on some of the letters using Prisma colored pencils or white gel pens.

Stamped the fauna images (Designs By Ryn "Sea Creatures 2") with various Distress Oxide pads. Added a bit of colored pencil in the octopus image.

Drew a line border around the edge using Ecoline watercolour pens. You may notice a bleeding effect on the edges and that's from dragging my ruler with the wet ink to create a distressed edge.

Scored and folded my aqua cardstock to create the easel and adhered my calligraphy piece to the front.



On the floor: Continued with the funky Neuland lettering to write "Thinking of You". outlined the thick parts with the white gel pen and doodled with a gold gel pen.

Stamped and embossed the starfish and small water bubbles. folded and adhered part of each to the floor to act as my stopper.

Adhered a larger starfish and stamped the seaweed.
