Stamp Connection #37

Hi Everyone,

Connected through our love for card making, blogging and being from Germany we (Tanja from Little Art Cottage and I) decided to create a monthly project within predefined requirements. We are going to show you the result every 2rd Sunday of the month and this is our thirty seventh transatlantic get-together!

This time it was my turn to pick the requirements:
get inspired by the last book you read

You guessed it right - it was about Octopuses. Highly intelligent and fascinating creatures. I learned so much about them! I really enjoyed reading this book! Well written and informative. If you are interested you can get it HERE. And no I have no affiliations to the author.

I used a Fred Mullett stamp, stamped it with Versamark and heat embossed it with different colors of embossing powder. Added the Rising Bubbles from Ryn Tanaka stamps and water colored the background. The sentiment is by Altenew.

I am really happy with how this card came out. First I was not sure if it would land in the garbage....

Lets check out  Tanja's artwork!

Happy Mothers Day!

Linking up with:
Craft Stamper TIMI challenge May - anything goes
Simon Says Monday challenge - ombre
Crafty Friends Challenge - animals
AAA Cards - inspired by nature

Take It, Make It Challenge.

Had no idea about octopuses....Sounds a really interesting book to read. Artsy card, full of colour and interest and what a great octopus stamp. Perfect sentiment for the most wonderful card, which I am glad did not end up in the garbage x

I saw this in one of the link ups and HAD to come inspect. I figured this was multi-color embossing and wow! What a great effect! You really used these images beautifully and now I'm wishing I had this FM stamp to add to my others. Sigh... :) Hugs, Autumn
