Pinky Inky!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are well and having a good week.  We have a drizzly day and quite dark, pity as the last few days have been sunny but cold and crisp, oh well that's weather for you.

Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last card, most appreciated as ever.

I've something a little different today;
Meet Pinky Inky the octopus, I think he is fab and it's another of Pink Ink designs. He's a big image so rather than make a card I decided to make a lollypop stick plaque.  I've still to put a cord on it to hang him beside my seaworld projects on our bedroom wall.  I've painted it all with Starlight Paints, and although it's quiet sparkly it doesn't really show here. The little fishes and the shell are part of the same set. Hope you like it.

Another short post, so cheerio for now and see you soon, take care,

Oh my - look at this! SO creative, Kate! What did you use to bind the popsicle sticks together? This would make a wonderful craft room decor! You've done a marvelous job getting inky pinkie colored to perfection and love the nautical feel of your sweet project! Well done! Xx

What a super little piece of art work Kate. I love the lolly sticks idea. This is something I could probably utilise for our Craft and Laugh Group at WI. Dee and I are looking for something different.. Hope you and Alistair are both well. Hugs Christine xx

Sue said...

Nice idea to use the sticks to display your work. Love the Octopus and the scene you created with is. Our Aquarium at Niagara Falls had a day last weekend and you could touch an Octopus. Saw it on TV and they are quite ugly and have like suction cups at the end of each of its 8 legs, wonder if anyone really wanted to touch it!!

Hugs
Sue
