Happy Friday!
This week's PPA challenge is all about letting the scallops flow.
My card base is Bashful Blue layered with Marina Mist and Colorbok Natural Speckletone. The speckled piece was embossed with Spellbinders Impressabilities Sea Scape, then the shells were sponged. The crab image (no make on the stamp) was stamped and embossed on watercolor paper, then colored with Dusty Durago and Real Red. I sponged Bashful Blue and Marina Mist around the image. The sentiment is from the Vintage Labels stamp set (retired). To make sure I kept with the 'scallops flowing across the card' theme, I hand-scalloped the inside layer. The two seashells are from WPlus9 Guiding Light stamp set.
I should now go and clean my craft table--it feels like it is covered in embossing power and sand (probably mostly sand as I had a little accident spooning it out of the bag)!
Thanks for stopping by.

Hallo, Lisa
eine ganz bezaubernde Karte mit Sommer-Feeling!
Die Idee, wie die Krabbe aus dem Sand hervor guckt, ist eine ganz süße Idee und ein absoluter Hingucker!

Wünsche euch einen schönen Sonntag und sei ganz lieb gegrüßt

Made me laugh about your "sand accident". I did the same thing one time with sugar in a "snow" shaker card. Love that embossed shell background. Hope you are well! Best, Curt
