ALittle Crabby!

Summer time is a time for beaches and waves and fun in the water.  A lot of people also like to observe nature and animals at the shore. This crab set - a Technique Junkie April release set - is just plain fun to stamp and use.

I used these Technique Junkie stamps:
Crabby (a set of 3)
Sea Waves -

I stamped the Sea Waves in blue on white card stock.   I stamped the verse in the upper left area with Black Versafine ink, covered with clear embossing powder and heat set.  Then I filled the spaces in the letters with a pale blue marker.  The crab was inked up with black Versafine ink and then  covered with an embossing powder that had a variety of shades in it -- browns and grays and olives and rust.  It was stamped on vellum. I colored in the bare areas from behind the embossed image on the vellum. Tearing vellum always adds some interest to the verse or focal image on the vellum.  To add a touch more visual interest I sponged the edges of the torn vellum with a little gray ink.

To finish the card I layered the sea waves on a gray card stock panel and  then on the light aqua  base card.

A fun card for sure!  I hope you enjoyed it! Have a great day --- and get inky!
