Hi everyone,

Today the August challenge starts over in the Rubber Dance facebook group.

For my inspiration I’ve used the stamps Something Fishy and Alphabet Uno from Rubber Dance.

I couldn’t help but think of all the walks that me and my friends did in the evenings along the water’s edge down at Nun’s Beach.  You know, when you walk along with the sea half way up to your knees?

And you just walk and talk at the end of the day.
You might say it is great exercise, that it is a great way to spend time with friends, and you might even say how relaxing it is … that is until something under the sand nips you on the toes!
It seems to happen more at different times of the day. But I swear it was as if the crabs were just waiting for me and my friends to arrive. And it was always more than once.

Anyway, that was what played on my mind while making this one.
Such good memories. And I couldn’t resist the words #surprise .

The center piece is made with watery decoart paints and some stamping.
The crabs were coloured with distress inks and water colour pencils.

The background behind looks kind of simple but that is what makes the center stand out.
What are your thoughts?

You can see more fantastic inspiration over on the Rubber Dance Blog here.

Happy Stamping!
