Creative Knockouts - Paper Piecing

I loved this Creative Knockouts challenge!  I decided to use neutrals with a pop of color.  This little crab is an oldie from Amuse Studios.  I bought it a while back with the sentiment - and this is the firat time I've inked it up - probably because I'm never crabby (Although my DH would likely disagree - LOL!).  I masked the crabs stamped in PTI's Soft Stone, paper pieced one from scraps for the color pop, added some Frantage (maybe more than some!), and added the sentiment.  Come and join our Paper Piecing Challenge.  The DT has fun inspiration for you here!
