I'm really getting into these now. I loved this octopus but couldn't decide how to display him on the card. In the end I choose the goldfish bowl and I think it worked well.
I had run out of acetate so I had to use vellum for the bowl itself and once I'd stuck all the bits to it, remembered you can see glue through it but I managed to hide most of the adhesive except a tiny blob at the top left corner and the base.
For the sentiment I used a few different stamps from PTI and just inked the words that I wanted. Those little Brilliance tear drop ink pads are perfect for that.
I am going to a craft fair over the Easter bank holiday which is being hosted in aid of Healing the Wounds, a Welsh armed forces charity raising funds to help with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) for people who have been mentally traumatised in conflict. A great charity and one which I support. So I am making up a whole bunch of stuff to sell and hope to raise lots of cash. This will be one of those cards I hope someone wants to take home with them.
