Quilled Crab Anyone?

Happy Tuesday y'all! Just popping in to share a little project that I created for my aunt and uncle who are big on shore living. My uncle is a boat captain and they have named their house "Crab Cove." When I saw this little quilled paper crab, I knew I had to make them something with it. I decided on making a little art piece using a 3.5 x 5" frame. I made some waves with some blue paper and a border punch. I did 3 layers and inked over them with a little blue ink to give it some texture. For the sand, I ripped some kraft paper and smushed my chamomile ink pad over it as well. I hand wrote "Crab Cove" with a navy marker and glued the crab down. A super easy and fast gift that I hope they will enjoy.

Thanks for stopping in! Hope you are having a great week :-)
