Glue gun technique :
You will need:

2.    A Craft matt.
3.    Adirondack alcohol ink – colour of your choice.
4.     
To make the designs:
1.     Lay the craft matt in front of you. Switch on your glue gun.
2.    Make shapes on the matt as shown. Don’t worry about the little strings that  float as you work. You will trim it off.
3.     
     
4.    Trim the edges  by cutting it straight.
5.    Now use the alcohol ink and pour a bit out on the craft matt.
6.    Swipe the motif through the ink and voila you have a coloured motif.
