Create A Smile

CAS | Challenge Launch Hop!

Welcome to my stop in the Create A Smile Challenge Launch Hop! If you’ve been hopping along, you just arrived here from Birka’s blog.

For our first challenge, the theme is “Favorite” and is very open for interpretation.


To me, I interpreted it as everything I love to do. My favorite stamp set, Underwaterlove; my favorite look, bokeh, and my favorite coloring mediums, watercolor and copics! This card embodies all my favorite things about cardmaking.

The background is fully watercolored in a variations of turquoise, blue, and purple. Then, I created a bokeh look by first blending in white circles with a stencil. Then I added some white splatter. And lastly, for that mesmerizing look, I added some crystal sequins.

My octopus was stamped, and colored in copics. I also added some shading details with a color pencil, to help me reach tiny areas. The sentiment is from another stamp set, that I heat embossed in white on black cardstock.
