Crab Door Hanger

Happy Tuesday!!
I wanted to share with you a door hanger I created at my son's request.  I try and create hangers for the kids' bedroom doors to keep the second floor festive and friendly.  =)  My son requested a door hanger with a crab on it.  So, here's what I came up with.
Since my son wanted a crab, I used the Under the Sea file set from Scraptastical Kreations.  (The shark and crab are in this set.)
I used the Peachy Keen Stamps challenge sketch as my beginning inspiration.  Thought I could use the crab as the focal point...and it just went from there.  The faces for the crab and shark from Peachy Keen Stamps Everday Character and Winter Face Assorments.  For the shark's eye, I used the 3/4" bird face from the Winter Face set, the left eye only.  Then I inked just the eyebrow so that I could angle it just right.   The crab's eyes are from the 1" bird face and the smile is from the 1 3/8" Everday Character set. 
I used Scraptastical Kreations Element Me This file for the banner and the embossed shaped.  The hanger looked quite plain so I toor some strips of paper to create 'waves'.  I inked the edges in red and accented with waterfall Stickles.  The stars and fish eye are also waterfall stickles.  I used twine to help bring it together.

  8. How sweet of you to make a crab door hanger for your son. It was wonderful, Tonya. He must've been very delighted after he saw it. Did he place it in his bedroom door? Well, can I request for a starfish door hanger too? Haha! Well, it looks so fun and easy to do. Perhaps I'd try doing one during my spare time. :)
