Textured Mojo



More textured cardstock! I love this stuff, and can't seem to get enough. This week's Mojo Monday sketch inspired this Easter card for me today. I wanted to use Close To My Heart's Spring Harmony textured cardstock combos (X5681) along with this "Springtime" stamp set (D1415). I included Heavenly Blue ribbons (Z1124) and some adhesive pearls. For a finishing touch, I added some Liquid Glass (Z679) for the polka dots on the umbrella and boots. Liquid Glass, incidentally, is one of the most versatile products I know. Not only does it work great as a strong adhesive for ribbon, chipboard, and metal, it also serves as a clear gloss over the top of stamped images, and gives a glaze-like effect over pattern paper. You can even apply a thin layer of it to an old photo, let it dry, then bend and crack it giving a very cool aged-glass effect.
