What the Crab Card ~ Color Dare #387

The Design Team at Color My Heart Color Dare is challenging you with RED this week! You can add Black and White if you like but NO OTHER COLORS! Use just one red or shades of red and make any paper craft you like. Full details are on our home page.

I thought this cute little crab was the perfect choice for a red challenge! I stamp rolled it in Candy Apple ink using 1st and 2nd generation ink. This means I inked it up and stamped on scrap paper. Then I rolled the edges on the stamp pad and stamped on the cardstock. This gives you that shaded look. I also sponged some black ink in the background for some dimension. Some shimmer brush for the legs and black dots finished the project.
