Crabby Shadowbox



Ever since I made my "Doodle That" shadowbox card, I've wanted to make one with the crab from Crab & Company. So here it is....finally. I used all SU supplies here, with the exception of the 1" circle punch (for the sentiment). I stamped the crab twice, and watercolored both with re-inkers and my aqua painter. Then I cut out the claws, and "face" and mounted them with dimensionals over the other image to make it stand out. The sand is colored with a Creamy Caramel watercolor crayon, and blended with the aqua painter. Then I used my 2-way Glue Pen with Dazzling Diamonds to make the sand sparkle a little.

If you love this stamp set, check out Dawn's gallery at her blog. She is the Queen of this set!
