Feeling Crabby?

Hello Inky Friends!


I hope this project won't leave you feeling crabby but ready for some beachy fun! (and maybe hungry?) LOL

For this project I used one of the April New Release's called Crabby. I'll admit that when I began playing, I wasn't quite sure what I was going to come up with- card, art or otherwise. I knew I wanted to try a beach with the Art Anthologly Paints, Sprays & Texture.
I also used some Tattered Angels products as well.
I began by spraying out some some of the inks and manipulating the beach colors a little heavier in some areas.

I then took a darker color and a toothbrush to splatter some specs of sand.

 I sprayed some pink onto white and heat embossed the crab with a cranberry colored powder.

I didn't get a WIP photo of the smear of A.A. Paint I added in for the water but here's a close up of it. I applied a Fiber Paste with a palette knife for the clouds to add dimension.
 
Close up of crab and an extra sand mound I popped up.

Close up of the word DREAM using the Soliloquy Stencil



So there's the final piece! I think the crab is dreaming that it won't wind up on someone's dinner plate! HAHA!

Hope this inspired you to create some seasonal pieces of art for your home or possibly as a gift and not just for cards!!

Until next time...

Happy Creating!!
