Deep Sea Life

Servus and wonderful weekend to you all!

Just a short post today, sharing my latest art journal card that was a result from a spontaneous play with some new goodies (the label maker, the Stampotique stamp and the chequer stencil).

My son loves the deep sea and all the mysterious creatures that live there. He is impatiently waiting for the first video capture of the giant squid and loves to watch (BBC) documentaries and reports about the latest discoveries. And honestly I do too ;)

So this art journal card is dedicated to my son - the future marine biologist ;)

I also used some washi tape and DecoArt Modelling Paste and acrylic misters alongside some rubber stamping, colouring and doodling with Faber Castell PITT markers.

Doodling my sea weed freehand I tried to let it match the squid's design.

The octopus was stamped onto white card and fussy cut with a crafters knife before I glued him to the card using matte DecoArt Decou-Page.

I hope you like my art journal card and have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs and happy crafting,
Claudia xxx
