You Are So Sweet


I made this card as a lift for the weekly 2Peas Digital Pea in the Spotlight challenge.


I was happy to see that 4Peas had used the Punch Elements kit by Vinnie Pearce. This kit is a freebie that came out a few weeks ago and I had been wanting to try. I also used my new Papertrey Say It With Style stamps.


This "sugar coating" technique of covering images with Mod Podge and Crystal Coarse Glitter is one I use often, and I'm happy to report that it also works on printed digital images.


However see the pink and green fruits on the right with a little too much Mod Podge? I tried to speed up the drying with a heat gun and the paper started turning to soup. So keep in mind, if you try this, to just let it dry naturally.
