Playing in Paradise #71

Happy Friday everyone, it is time for a new Playing in Paradise challenge. This week Jessi is inspiring us to create something inspired by "Under the Sea".

Isn't this stamp set adorable, I have had them for a long long time and have not inked them up. The designer paper is a new purchase from Scrapbooker's Paradise.

I stamped the crab and sentiments in blue then heat embossed with clear embossing powder, the crab is coloured with my Tombow makers.  I added a little background texture  and finished with tread and a little sand dollar embellishment.

Stop by the Playing in Paradise blog for the fabulous samples created by the design team. 

Supplies: Natural Ivory and navy cardstock, Designer Paper- Canvas Crop, Whipper Snapper Designs-Feelin' Fishy, Cuttlebug embossing folder, misc embroidery thread, circle punch and misc sand dollar button.
