Glue Drizzle

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a good day. I want to share a technique that I had so much fun playing with. On a stamping board a fellow stamper shared this with us and I just had to try it. Here is the card I made using the glue drizzle "flowers."

All you do is fill a container with cold water and drizzle the glue from a glue gun onto the water. It dries instantly and makes neat designs. I was talking on the phone when I was doing this, not paying too much attention to my designs when I noticed one looked like a flower, so after the call I intentionally made some more "flowers." Here is a picture of the drizzles I made.

        I colored these flowers on the card using a gold paint pen. TIP -- you need to use a paint pen, sponge on Staz On ink or use a permanent marker to color the flowers because otherwise the color will come off because it is a slick surface.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
