A bit Crabby

Evening all,

Little man is now in bed so I can share the rest of my creations with you. I have three for you this evening so this may take a while but OH is picking my Mum up from down South so I am all alone so no distractions. Here is the first:

How cute is the image, he was a freebie from Bugaboo Stamps. They have a new freebie every Friday so head over tomorrow to see what it is. I have coloured him with Promarkers. I kept the colouring simple this time as I felt it better suited the image. Shading is fab but sometimes it's just not needed. I have used papers from two Papermania pads and the mirror board is from my stash. I said in an earlier post that I would show you the other Natural ribbon I got last weekend so here it is. I love the stuff, I may have to go back to see if they have any others. ohh I just had a thought I wonder how well it colours with Promarkers. I know what I will be doing after I have shared all my cards. Anyway I have also added a little bit of string and onto that I have threaded a little metal fish charm. I thought I would make it more fun by not sticking him down so he moves along the string if you tip the card. The sentiment is hand typed. To finish the card I have added a string bow and some little pearls that have been coloured with Promarkers to match the image.

I am entering this card into the following challenges -
