Quite a Catch Blog Hop

Hello! Tonight we are showing more samples of this adorable stamp set "Quite a Catch" by Gina K. Designs. I'm having so much fun playing with this stamp set. Love the cute characters!
Now in this first card, I colored the images with copic's. Sponged the background. The foreground sand is copic's E31. The large fan shell I made using the Sunray technique, using Memento's Desert sand and Angel pink. I then used Spellbinder's nestabilities Big Scalloped oval.
The little shell in front is from Melanie Muenchinger's new set "Gifts from the Sea" by Gina K. Designs. Card stock is Red Hot and white from Gina K. Designs.



Now in my next project I made some napkin rings. Using " Quite a Catch" I stamped and colored the image with copic's ,then Sakura glaze pen for the shell of the crab and cut out the image . I then used a image from Gina's set "Organize It" stamped it in really rust ink . I then used Spellbinder's nestabilities label 6. Sponged with really rust and I attached it to the crab image. I rolled the label around a Liquid applique tube to give it a bend in the ring.



Here is what it looks like before I attached it around the napkin. Using a glue dot on one end to secure it. Note the arrow.


I thought this would be really cute for a place setting for a crab feed! I even was thinking it would be cute to stamp him on those white paper placemats.
