Cameo Crab - a DT Challenge!

It's challenge time at 2 Cute Rubber Stamps! Heidi drew us this adorable Happy Crabby image, which is available in digi format, and asked us all to make a card with it. What fun! The coolest part is that starting today YOU can download the digi image for *free* and enter to win a great prize from 2 Cute Rubber Stamps! You'll have 2 weeks to download the image and create a card.

I made a 6" x 6" card with my image. I printed out the crab several times so I could layer it the way I wanted to. On the base layer I used Versamark ink and Tim Holtz's Distress Embossing Powders to create the sand. I masked the bottom half (including the crab) and sponged on two shades of blue ink for the sky. Finishing off my card is a sentiment from Lizzie Anne Designs' set Shore Thoughts. I'm pretty sure it is retired now but I still love it!

I cut out his claws separately and adhered them to the base layer. I cut out the body of the crab and popped it up on dimensionals; the bucket was done the same way. I colored them with Copics.

This was such a fun challenge - be sure to stop by the 2 Cute blog to see what the other Cuties came up with! And don't forget to download your digi and create something fab -- we can't wait to see it!!!!
