Sailboat Scene

Hello, everyone!  Today I am sharing three cards, all using the same die.  I will share each card in a separate blog post, so stay tuned for the other two.  For this card I placed an alcohol ink background behind the die-cut and mounted it on navy cardstock, then rounded the corners.  I layered this panel with craft foam and adhered to a turquoise card base.


Die:  Penny Black Out to Sea
Clear stamp:  Sentiment (MFT)
Inks:  Ranger Alcohol Inks in various shades of blue

Wow, Kitty! This is not just beautiful, it is serene and STUNNING! Your choices of AIs is amazing, and makes for a lovely scene. What adhesive do you use on your detailed dies like this? Wishing you a great week-end, hugs, de

Oh my Kitty - that's eye-catnip for sure! Love it! I'm wanting to know your adhesive like Donna asked. I recently began using 3M General Purpose 45 Adhesive Spray for all my intricate die cuts and man, it's like night and day over anything else I've got. I just have to remember to keep a q-tip dipped in some acetone handy and spray upside down outside then wipe the nozzil with the q-tip after each use. No clogging so far. xoxoo

For anyone wondering about the adhesive I use, I prefer wet glue, and my favourite is Art Institute - Art Glitter Glue. I have the fine-tip nozzle which makes it ideal for an intricate die like this. Highly recommend this glue, if you're not already using it. It dries clear and is permanent. It's never disappointed me! (I've replied to Donna and Aimeslee directly but wanted to leave a note here in case anyone else is curious.)
