A crabby I love you

Hey everyone!!! I am here today with an entry for Mama Elephant.  I just love the colors of the photo inspiration challenge, don't you?  So I dug out my stamps and the ideas started flowin!  When I looked at the crab it reminded me of John Cusack in the movie "Say Anything", when he holds the boom box above his head to profess his love.  I decided instead of the boom box the crab (a girl) would hold her heart in the air.  Super cute right?  

I used some Beach Sand Embossing Powder and some distress ink and watercolored the background to mimic the sea or the sky (however you want to look at it). I sprinkled some Heidi Swap Color Shine for some added fun!
