Use a New Technique


It is time for a new challenge at The Crafter's Cafe.  We have some great sponsors for the challenge too.







Our theme for this challenge is Use a New Technique.  For my technique I have chose the Glue Distress Technique.  I have never used this before, but I thought it turned out pretty good. It is really very simple.  Just put glue dots on your cardstock and then smear them with your finger.  Let this dry completely.  Then I used 3 different colors of distress ink to cover my cardstock.  The glue makes an ink resist as you can see below.  Then I trimmed it and matted it for my card.


I have used a cute image from The East Wind.  This is Helena.
