Morning and welcome to Sunday morning

Morning and welcome to Sunday,

I expect some of you may be watching Barbara Grey of Clarity Stamps on Create and Craft this morning - I was but am now recording the end!!

Yesterday, over on Craft Mad and Loving It Clare set the challenge to make a project taking inspiration from an article in the latest issue of Craft Stamper - well, there sure were plenty to choose from! I eventually went with one written by Riet van Zundert and using clear glue!!! Yes, that sure drew my attention!

So, here's my card made using her technique - hope you like it.

Materials used:
  • White C5 300 gsm card, envelope and insert
  • Blue organza ribbon, knotted top to bottom off centre
  • Fiskars corner rounder and a Martha Stewart corner punch from a PATP set
  • Sequin waste
  • Old credit card
  • Mirri card
  • Panel of light blue card
  • Panel of navy card
  • White card: see technique below
  • Distress Inks - weathered wood, tumbled glass, broken china
  • Inkadinkado sentiment, unknown image and credit card inked with Memento paris dusk
  • Stardust stickles
  • Faux crystal gemstone

Technique, as described in the article:
  • Take a dries clear glue and draw random patterns (not too many) on to card and allow to dry completely before applying the lightest Distress Ink over the card panel. Apply more dries clear glue in random patterns in the gaps and allow to dry fully before applying your next colour.
  • I used a stipple brush to apply colour through the sequin waste and dragged my inked credit card to creat lines before attaching my cut out image and sentiment

Happy Sunday - hope the weather's nicer where you are - it's dull, grey and a bit on the chilly side!
