Real Tempting Saffron

Did you check out today's color challenge? As soon as I saw it, I reached for this set. I associate Tempting Turquoise and Real Red with this little crab because I always use those two colors for this set and it's been a while since I released him from his box. To start, I picked this sketch from Maria's blog. The image is stamped in Noir on watercolor paper. I used my markers and aquapainter to blend Cameo Coral and Real Red together. The sand is done with So Saffron, Creamy Caramel and Close to Cocoa. I dressed him up by adding a sparkly present, raised claw and googly eyes. The Saffron piece has the Canvas bg stamped in Versamark and then the shell stamped in So Saffron. I used the horizontal slot punch behind the Saffron piece because I didn't want my ribbon going all the way behind the turquoise cs. Happy Stamping!!!
