ALL. SCRAPS. Did you know a crab is not red until it's cooked? Well, except for the red crab, but here in Maryland crabs are blue-ish when alive, so mine is blue. Plus, I had a scrap of blue paper out on top of The Heaplet, so, you see, I had no choice.
This is your pretty standard beach scene, except I forgot the ocean, so he's floating on air with his
The eyes. Well, his eyes started out blue, like his body, so I colored them with a white gel pen, but the pupils disappeared, so as soon as the white part was dry, I added Ranger glossy enamel black dots. They started out smaller than what you see here. It was kindof like cutting your own bangs ... a little more here, a little more there ... until the black spots were almost as big as the white parts of the eyes. I finally declared them "even enough" and let them dry over night.
Well, who know I could say so much about a little blue crab? I personally think he's charming. :)
Happy Almost Friday, people!!! And thanks for stopping by!
Very cute and I think his eyes turned out great. I could go for some crab now, but here the only crab we get is frozen in a a bag from the store. Not really that good. Quite envious of people who get the fresh stuff actually.ReplyDelete
He is so STINKIN' cute! I can't wait to get my hands on this stamp set!ReplyDelete
