Okay... I know it has been a long time...

I started this blog with such good intentions! What happened??? I really want to be more deticated to this and am commiting myself to writing here more frequently.
I wanted to share a technique I learned that I thought you might enjoy. I have never seen it posted anywhere else but I am not sure if I can take credit for it either. :)
Suede technique-
All you need is liquid applique (z308- $3.25), cardstock color of your choice, a cosmetic wedge and a craft heater (z555- $28.95).

Simply put a dab of liquid applique on your cosmetic wedge and sponge it on to your cardstock. It will look like there is barely anything there but trust me, it will work out. After the cardstock is throughly covered, heat the cardstock with the craft heater until the liquid applique is dry and puffs up a bit. This will create a lovely texture on your cardstock. You can gently sponge on color to the applique it you want to add even more dimension.

That's it!!! You can see the texture on this bunny tag and on the edges I sponged it with chocolate. It is so much fun. I hope you will try it.

I PROMISE to write again soon.
*Every Wednesday I am going to try to add a little tutorial. Please let me know if there is something you want to learn about. I will try to put it on here.
