Make & Take Friday 13th August

This card was very popular, The printed background a a technique called glue distress. I used a page from an old book and dotted PVA over it then spread it with my finger then dried it, the next step is to rub 2 or 3 colours of ink pads over the dried glue, then it is buffed with a clean tissue and the glue shows through and gives the distress look. I then tore it to the right size, then stamped and embossed the swirls with black ink and clear embossing powder, then sponged ink around the edges. Then just layered on to the lilac card and placed a stamped image on the top.
