Textured Thanksgiving

Debra Burgin 1010 Textured ThanksgivingI was going to title this post, “Distressed Thanksgiving,” but that certainly doesn’t sound good, does it?  This is a peek at a project for October’s stamp camps.

But that’s what the decorative panel on this card has — lots of distressing.  I started by embossing the panel, then brayered the “wrong” side.  Next came a bit of Smooch Spritz, then some abuse with a pair of scissors and my fingernails.

It looks liked tooled leather to me, and I had a hard time actually gluing it down.  I just wanted to look at it!

And glue (Multipurpose Liquid Glue) is the right adhesive for this.  Generous blobs in the corners, about 1/2″ in, allow the panel to lift up.

And those rhinestones?  A trick I must, must tell you about!
