I'm back again with another card to share with you :) Like always :)
I recently took top 6 at the Saturated Canary challenge blog which totally rocked my socks off! With that I won 1 digi of my choice. Oh boy...that's so tough! I don't think I could ever get sick of browsing Krista's shop and choosing new images to buy! But I narrowed it down to just 1 (I went back and bought some later :) lol...)
After getting a wonderfully touching email back from Krista (she is such a precious gem!) with my image, I spent the rest of the day constructing my card.
Oh and the image is Pack Light colored with my colored pencils :)
I fretted pretty hard over the flowers for this card. I could not for the life of me make one that I liked. Either the layers didn't work out, or my glue would turn my paper to mush! So frustrating and I almost gave up...but I finally found one I liked and worked with the shapes to get it to look the way I wanted. And I love them! They are so perfect on this card! I also made a couple of little heather sticks and added them into the ribbon arrangement. Those were fun too :) It was just a small punch I had that I poked a hole in the middle and threaded them onto a piece of thick wire. Pretty easy :)
I just love this card! Even without a sentiment :) I can't help but smile looking at it.
So now my question. If you make your own flowers/embellishments, what sort of glue do you use? I am currently using Aleene's Tacky Glue, which I really love but it just seems to disintegrate my paper on flowers. I've used this other 450 adhesive glue, and while I loved it's strong bond, I hated it's delivery. I work with such small pieces that I have to have the pen tip like the Aleene's offers. Any of your tips would be greatly appreciated!!
