Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge :)

For this challenge I decided to go with a cartoon theme focusing on the colors and the freedom of the Pinterest inspiration photo. 


Mr.Crab was walking down the beach one fine day and knew he was forgetting something.  All of a sudden all of the  bulbs in his crabby head went off and DING.... "Oh Crab... i forgot"    At least he now has a cute card to offer the memory lapse ;)

I used a base of 8x4 white card stock from Papertreyink and drew in the cartoonish boxes using a good ole' fashioned ruler, pencil and black pen :)

For the images I used my three new Paper Smooches stamp sets: 
Chubby Chum Pals (the crab, bulb and sentiment)
Alphadot (the question mark and row of dots)
Spiffy Scooters (the "thinking" clouds and the smaller clouds)

I inked everything with Memento Tuxedo Black and used three paper collections:   Echo Park Splash for the water, Prima North Country for the "sand" and MME Love Me for Mr. Crab

Prismas were used to finish off the idea bulbs and the clouds.  I decided to keep the background white after much debate. I like how the images pop and the story is presented without too much distraction. I hope you like it and makes you laugh. Thanks for looking.
