I love the Octopode Factory images.  They all make me smile…life isn’t just about flowers!  I especially liked covering the spider web in her hair with a more obvious web.

This is my first use of my new laser printer…and my first attempt at transferring an image…all went well!

Details (Full Body):

  1. Base:  Product packaging.
  2. First Layer:  Pink cardstock, edge embossed, embossing highlighted with Distress Ink – Soot.
  3. Image:  Pink patterned paper (scrap).  I then printed Glo’ria Octopode (new laser printer) onto the thinnest copy paper I have.  I transferred the image by mod podging it, rubbing it down, and allowing it to dry.  Then you mist/wet the paper and rub it off.  It worked!  Lips, shoes, and spider purse eyes were colored with Copic Spica pens.  Her eye is a piece of rubber covered paper clip that I wound. using a jewelry making tool.
  4. Spider and webs:  Silhouette files.  The spiders legs are highlighted with Copic Spica.

Details (Head):

  1. Base:  Product packing.
  2. First Layer:  Scrap patterned pink paper.  Spiders:  Stamp, inked with Distress Ink Soot.
  3. Image:  Same as above, but blown up.  Printed on Neenah Solar White.  Colored with Copics, highlighted with Copic Spicas.  Outlined with black marker.
  4. Left edge:  Pink Gelato.
