Steampunk Squid

So these new Mechanimal stamps from SCACD are so cute!!! And the squid is one of my favorites.

I love the tentacles, and everything. I wasn't so sure about the colors of paper I paired with it, but the Purple definitely needed to be in there due to the purple tentacles. This image actually looks much brighter than it does in person. Hmmmmm.

I tried to make the pearls look a bit like rivets. I think the next time I do this I will maybe use the same colors in the coloring, but go more traditional steampunk with the rest... Uh... is there a traditional steampunk???

Alrighty then... I am entering this into the following challenge:
