It's OK to be Crabby

I simply adore the stamps from the Boardwalk collection! I love the simple lines of the shellfish and the many coloring choices you have with these stamps. 

These images gave me inspiration for the June technique challenge over at Club Scrap. The challenge is create your own handmade embellishments which is a perfect challenge for me.  I'm too cheap to buy new embellishments unless they're on clearance. I've been doing a lot of Origami crafts lately and came across an adorable crab!  I searched Pinterest but found this Origami Crab Video on YouTube to be the easiest to follow.  Give it a try.  Remember to use a light weight paper.

Be Different

Club Scrap is challenging its members to create their own Shibori artwork with tissue papers. This Japanese dye technique uses different folds and twists to create patterns on cloth. Today I'm playing with re-inkers and tissue paper. Julie gives a great tutorial on the Club Scrap blog. Using the re-inkers I had on hand and folded tissue paper, I created these background Shibori panels.  I then adhered the tissue to manila tags using bookbinding glue to make the panels more sturdy. Time to create cards with the gorgeous panels. This blue panel was created using Color Burst powders dissolved in alcohol.   If you'd like to join the challenge for a chance to win a Club Scrap gift certificate, enter your artwork via the Linky party on the website.
