Punch Art Week of Power – The Octonauts Come to Play

From the simple of yesterday to the extreme of today!  I’ve had the Octonauts on my punch art radar for a while now and this week of power gave me to push I needed to get them on to paper.  Meet Kwazii, Barnacles (Captain) & Peso!  They are punch art for the serious addict.

This is the chaos mid way through the design process (I’m not a neat crafter at the best of times, but punch art definitely makes me messier!):

And this is the finished product:

Go, little Octonauts – Explore, Rescue, Protect & wish some BIG Octonauts fan a happy birthday!  Kelly x

PS, No supply list for this project – it would be crazy!!!  But, if you want some versatile shapes for punch art, my top recommendations are the Owl Builder, Cupcake Builder & circles of all sizes.


Update: February 2015

After making the trio of Octonauts again for another card (compete with GUP-A vehicle), I have realised the design process was a little long, but the actual making of the Octonauts isn’t so involved.
