Color Team New Release Hop {day 1} ~

Hello!!  Today is exciting because it is time for the August release of Lil’ Inker Designs 2 Cute Ink line! 
Horiz lidag 2cuteink3  We’ve got 3 cute new sets for you to get your inky little mitts on!  You should’ve arrived here from the Lil’ Inker Designs blog to start the hop off.  Today, I’m showing you Surfin Crab.
surfin crab
This little guy really needed to be riding some waves with a sandy shore to land on.  I took a kraft scrap, ran it through the Xyron sticker machine and then dunked it in my son’s sandbox!  The waves are made from shades of blue cardstock that is ripped and dry brushed with white acrylic paint.  Some torn vellum adds just a bit more dimension to the sea.  The crab was stamped straight down on top of the first wave and white background.  But before I built the sea and shore, I shaded in the rising sun and sky.

The crab was stamped separately, colored and cut out to show he’s up on his killer board.  His little claws are also up on thin dimensionals.

Dunked in the little guy's sandbox!! I LOVE IT!!!! I'm incredibly impressed with your sand technique. I was looking at it thinking how did she get so much texture? Now I know!! I just love the dry brush technique you used on the waves as well. And the sky effect is just beautiful. This is a fabulous design, Alyssa! Thank you so so so very much!!!
