Sweet Poppy Stencils "Octopus Stamp" card

This evening, I have had a play using the new Octopus stamp from Sweet Poppy Stencils. 

I found a Brusho background I had made some months ago which I thought would be suitable for a watery background.

I stamped the Octopus image using Versafine Clair "Blue Belle" ink.  Then coloured the image using Derwent Inktense Pencils applied with a brush, building up the colour to create layers of colour.  I added touches of a white gel pen and a yellow Posca Pen, finally adding Ranger "Glossy Accents" to the eyes and the suckers.


  1. Sam, my gosh this is amazing what a gorgeous stamp x

    1. Thanks Annie. This stamp is not normally my sort of thing, but I fell in love with it x

  2. What an unusual and fun octopus image and love the way you have coloured it Sam, and that Brusho background is absolutely perfect. x
