Make it Monday #31

If you want to know how to use your supplies in a new way, just ask a child.  I had some die cut ice-cream tops sitting on my desk and I asked my son what he thought they were.  'Jellyfish' was his reply.  I knew I had to try it out to see if it would work, hence this card.  I made it for the Papertrey Make it Monday #31 challenge - Creating Backgrounds with non Background Stamps.  I created a jellyfish using the ice cream top (from the set 'Sweet as Can Be') and postage cancellation marks as legs (from the set 'Postmarks').  I stamped both with white ink on the background.  The legs of the pink jellyfish are made from glitter DMC embroidery thread.  I drew the eyes and mouth on the pink jellyfish using a circle template.

Stamps: Postmarks, Sweet as Can Be, Tiny Treats Birthdays - Papertrey Ink 
Others: Matstack 5 die - Papertrey Ink; Brown pen; Versacolor inks; foam adhesive squares; Thread - DMC 5288.
