And, it just so happens that this request fits July's Rubbernecker Stampin' Sisterhood challenge perfectly. Here is the inspiration photo:
I then cut a piece of X-Press It cardstock with a Nestabilities die and used Copic markers, a white Uni-ball Signo gel pen, and FlowerSoft to create the beach setting for the card. I drew the birds in the distance with a Memento Tuxedo Black marker. I paper pierced around the image panel.
Using my Cricut and the cartridge Life is a Beach, I cut the crab using creme cardstock.. I sponged around the crab with Adirondack Latte dye ink, and used the Uni-ball Signo gel pen and Memento Tuxedo Black marker to add the crab's eyes.
I paper pierced around a panel of Bo Bunny patterned paper. I faux stitched with a colored pencil. I placed the beach scene, complete with the dachshund and crab onto this panel. I framed this panel with creme cardstock. I added Caribbean Baker's Twine around the card, tied a bow and added a brown button for the finishing touches on this card.
I've got to share with you the reason I put the crab into the scene. Earlier last week, I discovered this adorable video that has gone viral....watch this!
Makes me wonder what Sloopy would do on the beach, LOL!
