Snug As A Bug!
This is my take on challenge 2 for July's Counterfeit Kit Challenge. We were to use more than three techniques. I'm never entirely sure what counts as a technique. Let me run you through what I've done and you can tell me how many are actual techniques and how many I've made up!!
Paint splattering. I didn't have any matching ink so I let down a little bit of acrylic - it worked just as well.
Sticker outlines. I cut out the over-run of the stickers and use them as extras. Makes a sheet of stickers go twice as far :) Is stash-stretching a technique?
Using 3d glue gel. I love to use this on butterflies to keep them 3d even when you squash them in to wallets.
Colour changing a PL card. This cute card with the banner had red dots to begin with. It jarred with the photo so I painted over each red dot with the acrylic paint I used to splatter the background.
Matting. Is this a technique?!
Of course I added ribbon too, in the pennant shape that kept popping up in the kit.
Did you count three amongst them? I'm not convinced!! :)
