Deadly Pirate-Pus of the Salty Ocean

Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I commissioned a vessel to sail us across the Salty Ocean in search of the vicious pirate-pus who has been destroying travelling ships for the past moon’s turn. Folk are scared to sail and it is causing a shortage of food as the fishing crews refuse to risk death sailing the now deadly waters. It didn’t take long before we spotted the giant sea creature rising from the depths, a giant pirate hat atop his head. 

I started this card by cutting the adorable octopus out using Create-A-Critter. I then embossed the blue cardstock with a folder that reminded me of waves, earning me +392 texturization exp points and allowing me to level up! Woot. The sentiment came from my own crazy head and I printed it on kraft cardstock (because I thought it looked like beachy sand) using my computer. I rounded the corners of the blue and kraft paper with my corner rounder punch (probably my most used punch), while some buttons and ribbon finished off this watery delight.

This creature will swim into the following challenges:

A fierce battle ensued, the Lady Commander unleashing a flurry of ranged lightning based magic spells and me loosing arrow after arrow from my Great Bow, Fungi. Eventually the deadly pirate-pus sank back into the depths of the Salty Ocean from whence he’d came. Where he procured that giant pirate hat still remains a mystery.
