I was finally able to sit down and make a card for the BE Inspired Challenge over at The Alley Way Stamps! Woo hoo!
Here is the inspiration picture:
I saw that big red heart and thought immediately of the little crab from the Sea Mates set! And I knew I wanted to create sand from the tan sugar cookies and the little heart sprinkles (they reminded me of a splattering of sand or water). Can you tell I'm already thinking of summer?
I dry brushed some paint onto the background and then used my scoreboard to create a border once it was dry. I also used my Spectrum Noir markers to color in the crab and to add the dots to create the illusion of sand.
I also added some Glossy Accents to the crab's eyes and the splash of water (from Tropic Topic). I think the sentiment is hilarious, too!
You still have a few days to play along with this challenge, so pop on over to The Alley Way Stamps for the details!
Thanks for stopping by!
