Crabby Smile – Coloring Video

After seeing this little cute crabby crab cake I knew I had to capture him in a jar, and so I did.  I decided to add him with my favorite jar stamp.  In the event I liked the way I colored it, I recorded the coloring process for your enjoyment.  Good thing I like it.  More details below in this post.

Creating this Card

There isn’t much to tell you about creating this card as it was pretty simple, but I will post the products below the video.

I printed the Crabby Cranston crab out and then stamped the Atlas Jar over it in a light gray.  Once the image was set up on the paper I added some pencil lines to represent the horizon and the sand.  After the sketching was done I colored up Crabby Cranston in the jar .  Using the ZigZag Rectangle die set I die cut out the image and using the foam tape I popped up the frame onto the card base.  The main image was adhered straight to the card base inside the frame.

I used a favorite product, chipboard sentiments, which is unfortunately is no longer available through the original company (Make It Crafty), but Whimsy Stamps still has some in stock to purchase.  HERE is the link to where you can find them.

I hope you enjoy the video, it is a little long, but adding all the layers does take time.  I love reading your comments, so thank you for that!  Feel free to like and subscribe to my YouTube channel while you are there.  Another video coming shortly.  Enjoy!!

    1. Ha Ha…I am a nail biter and no-one needs to see that. Rather concentrate on the coloring. It does make things harder though. 🙂
