Distress & Glue - Just Because - We Do Not remember

Hi bloggers, it's Yogi here today with a fun background... Distress and glue. ROFL. Click on any image to enlarge. Enjoy

For the background: on a regular piece of white cardstock, applied "Scattered Straw" direct to paper. Then sponged "Wild Honey" & "Spiced Marmalade". With my finger I smeared some glue here and there and set aside to dry. (all the yellowy splotches in the image at right are where the glue was applied). After the glue dried, I sponged "Salty Ocean" all over. Trimmed it down to fit card front leaving a scant 1/16" border all around.

Side folded my cream toned card to make a 5"w x 7"h card. Adhered my background. Stamped my bird (Old Island) and the Water Lily border (Beeswax) using Versafine Black Onyx. Stamped both these images again on some scrap white cardstock. The flower border with the black, the bird - coloring the stamp with Distress markers, misting with water and then stamping. Cut both out around the solid portion of the images. On the bird I also added some flicks of Wink of Stella brush to add some glitter. Adhered the bird to the card on top of the stamped image on the background. Adhered the flower border using 3D foam tape, also on top of the previously stamped image. Stamped the sentiment (10 Tiny Tag Sentiments) with the black and clear embossed.

Die cut some foliage (Memory Box "Leafy Branch" & Marianne Design) from scraps of decorated cardstock.

On the inside stamped the quote (We Do Not Remember...) with the black. Used some post it notes as a mask and stamped the birds (Old Island) with the black.

Hope you give the technique a try,  it has such possibilities... Have a great day
