This card was made for another swap on SCS. Yes, I've lost my mind. That means I have to make more (4 more, because I have to keep one for myself). I will be okay. Coloring relaxes me, needless to say I will be very relaxed. This stamp is from a company called Earth Art International (you can click to visit). Sue makes amazing stamps, they have so many details. You should visit, just for the eye candy. I chose the crab image because I live in Maryland and we are known for our Blue Crabs (not to mention crabcakes).
Stamp: Earth Art International- Crab, SU Scallop Shell stamp from Beautiful Beach Set
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black, coloring - Bic and Sharpie permanent markers
Paper: GP 110, Bazzill Dotted Swiss
Misc: scrap lace, 7 Gypsies Velvet flower, Bazzill 10mm brad, quilter's crystal head pin, shell made by me
This is a close up of the embellishment on the card. I made the shell. First I stamped the Scallop Shell on a piece of #6 recycled plastic (the carryout containers that recycling won't pick up), colored it, and cut it out. Then I punched a hole for the pin (1/8" punch). Next, I used my heat gun to shrink the plastic. Finally, I put my crystal head pin through the hole. Ta-da!

Thanks for looking!
