Octopus Monster

I'm doing a 2-in-1 with this week's project which meets the challenge requirements for both My Craft Spot (include a monster on your project) and Fantabulous Cricut (use the colours black and orange on a Halloween project).


I used Wild Card 2 for this fun octopus monster.  I embossed her with a folder from the Cuttlebug Give a Hoot Companion set.  I also sprayed some Glimmer Mist on her.  Unfortunately, the mist was more like a sputter - likely as I haven't used it in ages.  Anyway, I decided that it had a fun slimy look so all was good!  I added some Glossy Accents to the eyes as well.

At the bottom of the card, I added a fence cut from a Martha Stewart punch.  I also used stamps (both the round sentiment and spider) from My Craft Spot's Stampin' Around Fall set - and used the matching Tiny Doilies metal dies to cut the green and white circles.  That's why they fit so perfectly!  The little bow was tied with some My Craft Spot Halloween The orange and black papers are from Bazzil's Spooky and Kooky pack.


Don't forget that the My Craft Spot Christmas/Winter Release Party is coming up in just two weeks!! Be sure to check out the news HERE.

Be sure to head over to Fantabulous Cricut and My Craft Spot to see what the rest of the design teams have created to inspire you - and to enter this week's challenges.

I thought monsters were supposed to be scary. ;) This one is just plain goofy, like some of those old time scary movies that you can't help laugh at. But I like them anyway lol
