Just Beclaws The Paper Players Challenge PP592

 May 22, 2022

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players.

The fabulous LeAnne is our hostess this week and she has a fabulous sketch challenge for all of us!  I love this sketch and I can't wait to see what you create!  So many possibilities with this sketch.

My card is created on a white card base.  I distressed a piece of watercolored paper with oxide distress inks.  I added water drops to the ink to create the droplets.  I cut a sun using a die out of a piece of distressed ink paper, too!  The crabs and bird are made using the MFT Just BeClaws stamp and die set.  I think this set is retired.  I could not find a link to purchase it.  I colored the crabs with Copic Markers, added Wink of Stella and googly eyes.  The sentiment is stamped in black using the same set.
