For my entry into Make my Monday this week I used a new technique for me, hot glue shapes. The leaves and vines are made with hot glue run on a heat resistant sheet to make the shapes. I have seen people stamp an image on the sheet first and then run the glue over the outline but I did not have any suitable stamps so I did them freehand. When they were cool I stuck green tissue paper on the back of the leaves and cut off the excess. I sprayed the leaves and vines with olive glimmer mist. The background is stamped and embossed script on a piece of paper and matted on a dark purple piece of cardstock that is edged with silver leaf pen. The flowers are made from inked onion paper and white brodraise anglaise material with a lilac brad in the middle. I finished the card off with a few cream and purple beads.
