kraken dreams!


today i have a card up on the Newton's Nook blog with the super fun kraken from the Message in a Bottle stamp set! 

ha ha!
i just LOVE that kraken!!! it's so fun, and i have to be honest, it's just FUN to say kraken! lol! 

i colored him in with purple copics (no, i'm not sick. no, there was no gun to my just called for purple! i was as surprised to see it as you were! ha!) and the popped it up over that background!

for the background i colored some embossing paste with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and used a super cool wave stencil. LOOOOOVE those waves! then i used Vintage Photo Distress Ink to add some watercoloring to the bottom of the card for the ocean floor.

my favorite part of the card is that i added the watercoloring to the card base itself! so fun!
so that's my card!
hop on over to the Newton's Nook blog to see what else fun is cooking there! 


  1. I agree, it is fun to say kraken lol! Absolutely LOVE this card! The background is gorgeous and the purple octopus really shines!

  2. Love the vibrant purple and the blue wavy background!

  3. So fun! I can't believe you used purple on him (he he he)! I love all the amazing textures on this card too!
