Colored Glue Background ...

Hi Everybody,

This post for the next few days are all scheduled to go out because as you read this I will be preparing to go on my adventure to Phoenix USA for the Ambassadors retreat with Spellbinders

I thought I would get in a quick, fun tutorial before I go and this is the card that was made from this technique. There is not a die used on this  and no flowers either.

It is a quick and easy way to use your colored glues and they come in many colors ... and don't forget the glitter glues too.

This one to the right uses Cosmic Shimmer in Pastel Pink, Blue and Green

And all I have done it wrap it with pink satin ribbon from Mei Flower

The  card to the left has used some  Pearly Scrumptious glue in pearl Pink, Blue and Ivory and I must admit that this is my favorite.

Again it has been wrapped in satin ribbon with a pearl cntre over the knot.

So scroll down for the video ... it's only five minutes long.

Once I get back home I will be adding more tutorials and passing on any tips and techniques that I learn while I am away.

I hope you enjoy both the video and the technique.

I will try to blog as much as I can while I am in Phoenix but please bear with me if I miss a day or am perhaps late with a post.

I have not forgotten the Friday Freebie  either and have scheduled a lovely card to go out on the day 

More tomorrow from wherever I am ...

Hugs xx
