ID: DT Aug/14 - Distress and Glue - Just Because card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: Aug 2, 2014

I came across an interesting technique using Distress pads and glue... Love the way the background turned out.

I'm also using a sentiment stamp on the front and a quote stamp on the inside from Quietfire Design


For the background: on a regular piece of white cardstock, applied "Scattered Straw" direct to paper. The sponged "Wild Honey", "Spiced Marmalade". With my finger I smeared some glue here and there and set aside to dry. (all the yellowy splotches 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 scan 1/16" border all around.

Side folded my cream toned card. Adhered my background. Stamped my bird (Old Island) and the Water Lily border (Beeswax) using Versafine Black Onyx. Stamped both these images 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. Adhered the flower border using 3D foam tape, also on top of the stamped image. Stamped the sentiment with the black and clear embossed.

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

On the inside stamped the quote with the black. Used some post it note as a mask and stamped the birds (Old Island) with the black.
