Today's card is for the Hot Mess = Success card group
where the cards we make are ..... messy!
This card was so much fun to make
and I almost needed a raincoat there was so much water!
I added the 'how to' video to my YouTube channel
if you want to peek
and I'll do my best to show you here, too :)
To create this card, the one unexpected item was: school glue!
As you may have seen from the video,
this came about a couple of months ago after chatting with a friend.
She wanted to create emboss resist cards but didn't have Versamark
and I remember learning that glue resists paint
100 years ago in grade school :)
I tried it and it worked so for today's card, I'm showing you another one.
To get started, you'll need
glue, water, brushes, heavy weight cardstock, squeegee
and paints, watercolors work best.
I've done this with acrylic paints, too, and it takes 24 hours to dry
and watercolors can be used with a heat tool for faster completion.
Once your glue is in place, don't move the glue - move the water!
I add gobs of water around the glue and let it work organically.
If your brushes touch the glue - no biggie ..
just rinse them before the glue dries.
I did several takes and ended up using the one above
and stamped my Altenew flower Celebrate Today as my image.
