At¬†Craft Your¬†Passion¬†this week the challenge is Citrus/Tropical Colours.We have the fabulous¬†Zap Pow Designs¬†as our¬†sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don‚Äôt forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

So,I had a little fun with You Octi-Pi Our Heart by Zap Pow Designs¬†ūüôā I paper pieced him with some funky patterned paper and then coloured over his spots and tentacles.I then printed him out again onto card and coloured and cut out his glasses and bow tie.These were shaped a little then adhered using foam tape for some extra dimension.The lenses in his glasses have been give a coating of 3D Crystal Lacquer.For the spotty background I punched out two sizes of circles from scrap card in my stash.The sentiment,included with the octo nerd,has also been hand coloured and cut into a banner shape before adding a couple of dew drops.Originally clear these have been tinted to match in with the card.
