Aquatic Greetings - Stamping With ScrapHappy Glue!

Today's card is for The Rubber Cafe and is a mini-tutorial...a mess free way to stamp with Scrap Happy Glue.  There are several ways to stamp with the glue...but this way keeps my fingers from getting sticky...and the stamp is easy to clean up with an easy water rinse after stamping your image.

I inked up the H-978 Background Basics 2 using Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  Then I added a small dot of the Scrap Happy Sheer Glue in the center of each of the inked dots.  I varied the size of my glue dots as I wasn't going for a uniform perfect look.

I stamped the image onto my cardstock and sprinkled with the Blue Skies You're So Fine Glitter and then set it aside to dry completely.

I stamped the K-1131 Seahorse With Fish with Memento Black ink and colored it with the Copic Markers shown below.  As you can see, when I plan to fussy cut an image, I do not bother with keeping it within the lines, and I can color quite quickly.

The sentiment stamp is A-202 Hi There!

Hope you've enjoyed my take on these new to me Rubber Cafe images...the variety of themes in The Rubber Cafe's catalog is very wide!
