So a while ago I saw someone on Instagram / Pinterest use this great stamp by Your Next Stamp..
I had to have it (Instagram / Pinterest hurt my wallet).
I love it, as you know JT and I have a crab thing..long long story. I figured I could get some milage out of this bad boy.
I stamped and die-cut him out, I coloured him using Zig Clean Color brush pens. Love the shading I do so easily with these pens.
This card was the inspiration for my background -
|Card by Kate at Small Bits of Paper|
For a bit of interest I chose to use a wood line stamp by Prima Marketing for my background and used Salty Ocean and Mustard Seed inks for my sky/sand. I spritzed the stamp with water before laying down my paper and I just LOVE the effect I got. I die-cut it out using stitched rounded dies by MFT.
This card didn't actually go to JT, it went to Queen of the Flip Flop - Jenn Shurkus..she loves Flip Flops and the sea and summer, so it was naturally a card for her!
Also I got another Honorable Mention over at CASology for my Embrace entry, how nice is that, what a wonderful start to the holidays.
