Is it bad that I love this sentiment so much? Heehee. I really do. For this card I started by doing a watercolor background containing sky, ocean, and sand on Ranger Watercolor Paper and adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base. I added clouds and a sun, then stamped the sentiment at the bottom.


The images were stamped with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, then colored with Copic markers. I popped them up in he scene and it was done! Lovin’ that crab!

And that’s it for Day Four of MFT’s June Release Countdown. Thanks so much for stopping by—see you soon!
