Crabby HI!

Hello, Hello!

Today's card is such a fun one, and it is for a special event at Splitcoaststampers!
My card making venture started out quite a few years ago now, with SU and the SCS website.  I got my 'big break' there, when I was a member of the Dirty Dozen.  Each year, current and past DD members host a special event of challenges to thank those who are members of the SCS Fan Club.
So, in honor of Splitcoaststampers, here is my card!

Challenge details can be found in the Dare to Get Dirty Forum.
I used one of my favorite critters, from the Sweet n Sassy Stamp Set, Mer-Mazing.  And as he seems to be waving 'Hi', I thought it would be fun to have the sentiment be 'Hi'!  To do this, I used the new School Days Clear Alpha Stamp Set. I left the stamps right on the acetate sheet and with some tape runner, adhered the entire sheet of letters to my MISTI door.  FYI, today is the LAST day to take 25% off of everything in the My Sweet Petunia store (MISTI) as they have been celebrating their 5th birthday.
I inked up the alphas with Versamark ink and stamped onto my Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock.  I heat embossed everything except the H and the I with clear embossing powder.  I inked up the  H and the I with Versafine Black ink and then heat embossed with clear ep.
Once everything was heat embossed and cool, I watercolored the background with Ken Oliver Colorbursts.  I seem to have be saying this a lot lately, lol!
Mr. Crab was stamped on Neenah Solar White cs and colored with Copics.  I fussy cut him out.  I made my square window with Spellbinders Square Nestabilities.
Lastly, I added Glossy Accents to the little guy's eyeballs!

I am also linking up to The Male Room, for their 'Surf's Up' Challenge!

I am also linking up to Just Add Ink for their Just Add 'C' Challenge- my 'C' being a crab.  :D
