Fruit Roll Ups, not just for consumption anymore

 second posting today scroll down for Paper Cutz challenge...

This is the 4th Friday of the month which means you need  to hop on over to the Mod Podge Rocks blog today and leave her a sweet comment to be entered in a ANOTHER Mod Podge Started Kit Giveaway!  These kits are awesome!

There is so much you can do with glue if you set your mind to it! When I received this kit a month ago I had two ideas rolling around and I just now got around to trying them out.
 My first thought was to create a pseudo embossing technique with Mod Podge and reinker.

Start by placing Mod Podge of your choosing  on a hard surface. The amount of glue was about a 2 inches in diameter with 5 drops of black re inker added.

Mix well!

Get a layer as thin possible on second hard surface, glue up stamp,


Here is your image! By the way I am using Torendi's M is for Monster

Allow to dry & color as desired!

Here is where the Fruit Roll Up comes into play, start with a non stick surface, (I used a special crafting sheet) dump a ton of glue on it..After adding about 7 drops of any re inker color of choice (be warned the color may be different than your expectations!) mix well, spread around and allow to dry. The dry glue will become transparent and very bubbly and removes easily from the non stick surface.  It has the consistency of a fruit roll up yet less sticky. I stamped "Monster" on it and moved it to it's final resting place along with the embossed image from earlier. Here is the sketch I used from Sketchy Thursdays:

 Here is my layout:

Here are some close ups:

So, are you feeling the powerful bond that Pod Podge and I have developed? I hope so! Have a great day! Beth
