Under The Weather?

Today i would like to talk bit more about my card. The stamps is a Motivet Spring release but i thought he is so cute for fall too so i have ordered him the other day. I wanted to give my card that "wet" look, so i have started out with a acetate card base, than i have added to the rain drops lots of Stickles and on the ground where the water puddle is i added paper glaze. To deepen the shades of my coloring i have added to Dexters coat some Shimmerz paint in Marigold and to the frog "celery green. To make my epoxy tag, i stamped the sentiment, cut it out with Cuttlebug's "Tiny Tag" die and also added also lots of Paper Glaze to it. After it was dried i assembled the card. In the inside i have stamped "feeling under the weather"

To glue the papers on my card i use THIS glue! it is totally awesome. That stuff sticks AND you can not see the glue lines once dried on the backside of the acetate.
Stamps: Motivet "Dexter in a puddle",
Papertrey Ink "Hello", Amuse Art Stamps in the inside "under the weather"
Papers: Acetate foil and Making Memories
Embellishments: Shimmerz (celery green on froggie, Marigold on "Dexters coat" ) Prima Marketing (flowers), Stickles, paper glaze, Stampin up ribbon, Button
Have a wonderful weekend!

Heather said...

THANK YOU!!! U have asked MANY people what type of glue they use but the Q is always ignored and never answered. I have tried many and they all warp, show smudges, and make the cards 'crunchy'. The glue runners get unsticky after time and I have found cards in my box that were in a million pieces. I am so happy about this post and trying this glue!!! Thank you!

Your card is beyond adorable. I love the image and the acetate. you are amazing!!!

OMGoodness Claudia what a beautiful card and how clever to use acetate to capture the "wetness" for this rainy day fellow! I love how you explained all the layers and what you did... it's like a mini lesson right here. Thanks for always sharing your "how tos" on your project. He is cute with his mischievous eyes!
