I 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!
