Hey... you've got this !

Hi there!

There's a fun inspiration photo over at Inkspirational challenges  and I decided to play along!


My card :

I used :

  • Octopus cutting file from Miss Kate Cuttables
  • Glasses cut from a free clip art image
  • Hey : Font - Amastery script with glyphs for the 'h'
  • Silhouette cameo
  • Stamped sentiment from Altenew Sentiment strip stamp set
  • Adirondack ink in Watermelon
  • Rocco polka dot stencil
  • Googly eyes
  • Foam squares for dimension
  • Black rhinestones

Quite a literal interpretation of the photo, I just couldn't resist trying to incorporate as much of the elements from the photo in my card. The dots, the red and white, the tentacles... and then of course those glasses ! 

I just love it when there's a REAL connection between the sentiment of a card and the image or focal point... and I'd like to think I achieved it in this card 😄

Thanks for visiting me today!

OMGoodness! This one made me chuckle! I was curious when I saw this challenge just how designers would interpret the photo prompt and you have hit the nail on the head with humor!!! This is amazing, Hannelie! : )
Take care! - Rachelle : )
