July's Tool & Stash challenge is to use those pre-printed tags, stickers, cut-aparts. Well since I have an entire drawer full of them this gave me an excuse to go digging. Why don't I use these more often? They make card making so simple when you don't want to pull out the stamping supplies. Just add a few embellishments and bam! You got an adorable card.
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.
