Hi! Happy Friday! I’ve just packed all my crafty goodies up and am heading down to Richmond for a scrappy retreat with Doodle Crew Retreats!! I’m so excited! I look forward to these retreats all year and this time I really feel like I deserve a weekend away. Lol! These last couple months have had me going in overtime!
Today I’m playing along with this month’s Inky PawsChallenge! I chose one of my favorite stamp sets from last year- SEA-sons Greetings:
I just love that little crab! I stamped the Joy and the crab onto watercolor paper and diecut it into the banner shape. I also stamped the crab again so that I could paper piece him over later. I colored them with the residual inks from my ink pads and a water brush. When the crab was dry, I cut around him carefully and added him on top of the other one.
The papers are from the Echo Park Christmas Cheer 6x6 paper pad. I cut them into banner shapes to go along with the diecut banner. I also added a bit of twine for embellishment.
I hope you have a chance to play along with us this month! Don’t forget to pop over to the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog to see what the rest of the team has made!
