Happy May and a Freebie!


Happy May!! 
Here in CNY Spring is happening! Finally!  Flowers are blooming!! I'll be in my garden in just a few minutes,   But first a little coloring and Best Glue Ever fun to share with you!  
The card I am sharing with you today  - I am giving you this flower so you can try this too!





I created this vintage card using this image ( you can too)!




I created two panels, one with a background using Graciellie Design Organic Bouquet to be the main card face and a second to do detailed coloring and cutting 
This card was printed on Heavenly White #80 card stock  This paper Loves my alcohol markers!





My alcohol marker of choice Spectrum Noir - I am a very simple color-er









Now when the coloring is all done the artistry really starts.  My coloring is really only so - so, it is in the assembling that the makes the difference!



I fussy cut the image with more detailed coloring and add it to the base flower: Using Best Glue Ever I can place the petals where I want them and if I change my mind, I have enough time to move it. Best glue ever setting time is within a few seconds, enough seconds to fix an oops, but not so long that things slide around!  Best Glue Ever once dry remains supple - this makes a big difference in the finished card.






For the layers, I just teeny tiny dots fo glue and then smooth with my hands




Results:  Perfectly smooth and it holds better and long than ATG tapes - It is all in the Resin base of Best Glue Ever!


results are like this every time!!



Best Glue Ever really is the best glue ever!
I Hope you enjoy my digital freebie and give the glue and the card your own artistic touch!
Thanks
 for stopping by!
