Snappy Birthday

When I saw the Crab and Company set I just had to have it!!! It is sooo cute. At the time of making this card I was using up some of my scraps of paper, hence why not a lot of Stampin' Up! used on this card, just the stamp set.

This is one of my first attempts at watercolouring using an aqua painter. Have always done my watercolouring previously with a paintbrush dipped in water. As they say we learn something new every day!!

Anyway here is the card:-

Almost makes you want to go to the beach!!

Carstock: Unknown blue cardstock, Stampin' Up! Whisper White

Paper: EK Success - A Day at the Beach (Beach Bum)

Inks: Black StazOn, Stampin' Up! Tempting Turquoise

Embellishments: "my inspirations - yellow ribbon", eyelet, button

Other: Watercolour pencils

LOL - that card is so cute Karen! That little crab always makes me smile! Sadly, I think that set "might" retire from our catalgoue this year! I sure hope I'm wrong cause I love it!
