Club Scrap Technique of the Month: Embellishment

The technique of the month at the Club Scrap blog 
is home made embellishments. I love that!!
Thank you Tina for coming up with this fun idea.
And as I always wanted to make these crochet 
flowers from a button, this is the time to do it!

Stamps are from this months Club Scrap kit Boardwalk.

I also found a good video for those of you who want to
give this technique a try:

Click on the image above and the video
will start to play.

It is really an easy thing to do and does not take a lot of time
(when you know how tocrochet that is).
I had a little bit of this natural colored cotton with a 
tiny gold trough it. Perfect for my vintage card.

And as for the beach, I thought of an old but 
much loved technique. Use a piece of torn post it,
a blending tool and an inkpad.Move the post it 
note and ink it up every time you move it.

After stamping the image with walnut stain, I put the
inkpad on the craft sheet,alittle water and a brush
to color the image.

I have some more embellishment ideas,but no more time.
See you around sometime this week!

Have a creative day!

Your cute flower embellishment is so fun on that card! I tried to learn crochet, but quickly realized my talents lie elsewhere, LOL. TFS!

Hetty, your crocheted button flower looks AMAZING! Thank you for the video! I can't crochet but this looks very doable! I've always wanted to know how to crochet! I will seek out a thin crochet hook and thin yarn in my second-hand store travels to see what I can find! Another great use for buttons!
