Okay, there is a darn good reason not to use glue. It takes a long time to dry, and by the time it's dry enough for you to realize that the part didn't turn out the way you liked, you have to start over and the project takes days instead of hours. My project still isn't done. I'm waiting for yet another iteration with glue drying. It's maddening. But I think in the end, it will be worth the hassle. So far, so good.
I finished ATCs for a swap I'm in. Here are two of them. I took them at an angle so you could see some of the details. They both have a color wash background, though one used a different ink (I think the one on the left was chalk inks). The stamp is a clear stamp from Autumn Leaves (?) that Michele Kovack sent me. There are three flowers cut out and popped up on top of each other. The background is a TAC stamp, embossed in silver. I punched the corners, added twine, and some pretty little bling in the center, and voila. Simple, but very shimmery and pretty. You can see the shimmer very well in the photo on the right.
Oh, and I stamped those flowers on Basic Grey Periphery. Love that paper to death. I just love it.
I'm getting sick. Sore throat, stuffy head. Yikes, I don't have time to be sick. Maybe it will go away soon. It probably would help if I'd go to bed, but I want to go visit the sisters, and I have to add the rest of them to my SBS blog roll. Maybe tomorrow.
