Happy Friday to all! Today's card is all about making your own background paper over at Moxie Fab World.
I came across this fun technique by using glue in the UK's version of Craft Stamper - Yes, just paper glue! This technique is totally new to me and this card will also be submitted to this month's contest over at Hero Arts. I was amazed with the result.
First, you make patterns with the glue on a white cardstock - it does not matter what pattern you make but for this card, I made some circular patterns. Allow time to dry and once it's dry, use distress inks to go over the cardstock. Then apply a second layer of glue over (not entirely) the first layer and allow it to dry. Apply another layer of distress inks over it. For this card, I used dusty concord, shabby shutter, peeled paint, spiced marmalade and mustard seed.
The sentiment is from HA Frames and Messages and I finished it off with the paper ribbon and added a three layers of different colours of flower too.
I was very lucky that as this was my first attempt and it came out so beautifully and so I decided to try a second, third, fourth and it didn't work out anymore! Puzzled! What did I do wrong? If you manage, please do let me know and I would love to see you masterpiece! Good luck!

All the snow is gone and so is the igloo but now we have rain and storm. This morning I had to cycle to attend an orientation programme at the American School for another substitute work but with that storm, I felt like I was literally cycling on the stationary bike as the wind was 85km/h. LOL! Hope your weather is better then ours!
Have a fun and crafty day!
