Thank You ~Rubber cement technique

This was my first attempt at using Rubber Cement to decorate my card. Let me explain...
First I stamped the flowers and thank you using clear dollar stamps that I bought at Michaels. After the background was all stamped (a bit too many flowers but I was just playing around). Then I took rubber cement and a paint brush and covered all the white parts with a thick layer of rubber cement. I needed to go a little thicker but impatience made me go to fast. After the rubber cement dried I sprayed the whole background with green spritz and let that dry. Then I rubbed the cement off and those parts remanded white.

This is a good technique and I will be trying it again. This first try came out ok but there are some problems with it. You learn from your mistakes right.
Thanks for stopping by!
