Watercolor Blue Crabs

Being from Maryland, the blue crab is all the rage, so I had fun making this set of cards (even though the crab image isn't the Maryland Blue Crab).  
The seaweed is stamped first in Stampin' Up! Old Olive ink.  Then the crabs are stamped in Jet Black StazOn ink and colored with Stampin' Up! Indigo Island ink using an Aqua Painter.  The verses are stamped with VersaMark, then add Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat.  The string is just some old string I had saved from something or other, but any twine would work.

Stampin' Up! stamp sets used : Seaweed is from "By the Tide and Crab is from "By the Seashore."
