Happy Monday! Well today Mary Joe out did her self with the sketch. I just loved it, but it took me a couple of minutes looking at my stamp sets before I decided on "By The Tide." It seems I use that one a lot with her sketches, but one difference. This was the first time I used the lobster out of the set. And, I love the way it turned out. Probably if I re-did it, the only thing I would change is, move the lobster up a little. But I still love it. So here you go!
I did cut the lobster out, but first I stamped it on the Very Vanilla oval piece after I stamped the Happy Birthday which is from a retired set called "Elementary Elegance." I was worried I would get it too high, so then I stamped the lobster again on very vanilla and put it over the already stamped part of the image on the oval. You see I knew I would not be able to cut out the antennae (or a better name for it is whiskers). So the reason for stamping it twice. Always a reason for doing something, that is me. LOL
And now let's look at the inside!
For the inside I still used the "By the Tide" stamp set, but I also used "Remembering Your Birthday" stamp set for the sentiment. Love that stamp set, actually love both stamp sets.
And here is a side view which kind of let's you see the dimension of the lobster!
Well thanks for stopping by today and hope your Monday is a Happy One!
