I swear, I think the same letters used on the CASE are the same ones I used. I had these rub-ons like forever and they were not user friendly because they were printed so close together that it was like impossible to cut them apart to use, so in the spirit of Donna Downey, I just took the whole sheet of the blasted things and rubbed them onto the base of my card. Problem solved, now they are gone!


I took my distress ink and rubbed it across the rub-ons, just love the resist it creates, the bird was dipped in the melting pot of UTEE and the chipboard branch was cut free hand and tinted with the same distress ink.

I laughed (sympathetically!) at your tale of struggling with the rub-ons. I can reassure you that I'm no dab hand with rub-ons - although the typeface is the same, my ones were handily printed off my computer! Anyway, I love your multi-letter background. You've done a great job of case-ing me with your lovely card.
Thank you for joining us at Inkspirational Challenges. Come back next week! Marina

Wonderful card, Sandee! Brilliant way to decorate and use the rub-ons which make a fantastic card base! The doily frame is inspired to frame the terrific bird and branch!!
