Crab Number 3!

This one is actually my favourite. Joanna inspired me to try one of these Spinning Window cards. The little circle is suspended on Dental Floss, and spins around. This is what's on the other side:

These colours are from my head again (see, I told you I have a strange head!). Really Rust, Marigold Morning, Old Olive and Tempting Turquoise. I would never have thought these colours would work together, but I think they do...I just started colouring the crab in Really Rust, and the other colours flowed from there. The background swirls on the Tempting Turquoise piece are from "Fun Filled", a cute little set, with lots of possibilities. I've watercoloured with my Inkpad lids and Aquapainter again, and used the Going Grey Inkpad and blender pen to add dimension.

This was such a fun card to make! I'd love to hear what you think...


  1. think i'm going to have to steal my neighbours stamp set and case your cards!

  2. THUD!!!!!! That was my jaw hitting the floor in absoloute amazment!! Marelle - this is just adorable!! I am so glad you are having fun with the crabs I sent ya!
