How to Create an Underwater Garden for an Octopus

Today, I’ve printed more Thank You cards for the shop and decided to use my colourful underwater garden that was created for the Australian Art Journal Swap back in 2017. You may have seen it before :)

The octopus, fish, their friends and the groovy quote are all stamps from Dyan Reaveley and Tim Holtz. Other favourite treasures used were stencils, acrylic paints, watercolours, Distress Inks and Mermaid Markers. Ok, so they’re all my faves! lol :D But I really love Dyan’s adorable critters with their cheeky attitudes! They make me smile whether just looking at the stamp set or colouring them in :D

More photos with easy to follow, detailed instructions plus a full list of treasures used are on my craft blog. Click this link : How to Create an Underwater Garden for an Octopus or copy / paste :
