Quirky's Octopus's Garden... And Some Freebie Papers

I had soooo many things I was going to join in with today but just never found the time but, at last! Here's one of my cards for the latest Quirky Crafts Octopus's Garden challenge...(without the Octopus, as he's eating his birthday cake!)
 I like this little fish, I mean...look! He has an umbrella! He comes from  Squigglefly.   one of our three sponsors!
As I didn't have any coloured ink last week...or paper (honestly I must be the only crafter in the World out of ink and paper!)  I made by own backing papers using lots of different blue Promarkers...
(which I've added here for you to download. It's supposed to be wiggly Waves!)) then scanned it into the computer, resized it, placed the little fish over the top, printed him out and then coloured him with ProMarkers too, and that's when you could see that I had a dog on the other side of the paper! (A dog's leg actually!)
 So! I now have coloured ink, yay! (Lovely stuff!) and have 'redone' him! It's a mixture of computer and Promarker. There's also a smaller fish there too.
 The font I've used on the sign is a  freebie, it's called Grilled Cheese. (If you google the name, that's what you'll get!) so download it HERE
The little skulls are also a free font, (the letter B) there's other skulls, it's called Evilz, download HERE
I think that's it. My computer seems to be writing in black, which means you can't read it, so I'm typing in yellow.... which means I can't see it!! never mind! Back again later....I hope to add this to some...
