Oh crab!

Afternoon peeps!

It has been quite a while since my last post. I am so busy with commissions that I don't have much time to craft for myself these days. 

I did consider closing the blog for a while, but then I thought that I would rather post occasionally than not at all. If I don't get round to making cards for myself, I can always share my magazine makes with you.

Here is a card I made for my Uncle Ted. I unfortunately missed his birthday (slap on the wrist) so I created this for him...


Items needed...

Stamps: Chubby Chum Pals - Paper Smooches
Promarkers: Ginger, Ice Grey 1, Sunset*
Card stock: white
Ink pads: Onyx Black - Versafine
Black fine liner

* Limited edition colour

I adore this stamp set and I love crabs (I live near Cromer which is famous for its crabs). After colouring him in red and ginger, I then used a blender pen with a fine nib added to lift off some of the colour. This helps to give the texture of a real crab. I added a simple border with a black fine liner.

I hope that you like my make and that you will continue to pop in occasionally to see if I've posted anything new. For my dedicated followers, I thank you so much!

TTFN! xxx
