{Thu} Video Tutorial: Make Cards using Hot Glue Gun

Thursday, June 04, 2015

Hello,

I have a new video tutorial to share today:





How-To:
1. Trim a panel out of watercolor paper (smaller than your card front)
2. Stamp and heat embossed the sentiment in silver (embossing is optional, you can just stamp it using a regular stamp pad)
3. Load glue gun with glue stick of your choice (I used a glitter dark blue glue stick)
4. Start doodling around your stamped sentiment (you could also trace a patterned with pencil first if you don't want to freestyle)
5. Use a heat gun to re-heat the glue
6. "Stamp" the glue using a background stamp 

{The following steps are optional...}

7. Watercolor some of the white space

(with ArtBars by Derwent)

(with PearlEx Watercolor CD)

8. Re-heat a section of the glue to adhere a paper flower

Here's a photo of the card without watercoloring:

I'd like to link the first card in the following challenges:
1. Word Art Wed #186: Anything Goes/Family Friendly
2. Addicted to Stamps #147: Make your Mark
3. Simon Says Make It Masculine
4. Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #13: A Year of Choices (#6 Stamps)
