Oh Crab, Missed Your Birthday

We’ve got a brand new challenge at The Cat’s Pajamas today and it’s “Anything Goes!”  

That means it’s all up to you to create anything your little heart desires :)  I decided to give this cute Seas the Birthday set another whirl.   I think this little crabby guy is so sweet.  I stamped and coloured him up with Copics, adding his little birthday hat on his head.  I really love the red, soft aqua blue and kraft combination of colours together.  

For the background ocean layer, I first began by using the “O’s” from our Coolvetica Alphabet set with VersaMark ink to create the bubbles on the watercolour paper.  I embossed them in clear embossing powder and then added lots of random watercoloury wash overtop, adding some salt to the  page to give it some cool effects.   Once it was dry I used the Wave CutUps die to cut the top.  

For the sand I cut out a section of Kraft cardstock with our Wavy Stitched Border CutUps die and stamped the sentiment onto it colouring it in a bit with my Copics.  

A little sewing, a button and twine finish it off.  

Hope you can join us for the challenge!  Cards and projects are not required to use a Cat’s Pajamas Stamp or CutUps die but if you do the Cat Cash amount increases, so jump on in!

Amazing! I never would have thought to use an "o" to create water bubbles. Truly Amazing
