I have spoilt quite a few cards that I was making by having little bits of "shiny" spots on the card from silicone glue. Sometimes it has just leaked out from where I have used it ( obviously I have put too much on)and sometimes I suspect  have must have had some on my fingers and not known. I only use it when I really have to because of this problem I have. It's usually not apparent until after I have left the card to dry and there is little bits that "shine".It is so obvious to me and I end up throwing the whole thing away and starting again. Has anyone any ideas how to rectify the problem apart from covering the whole thing in glitter? Angry  One of you clever people must have a solution for me please Smiley

I know what you mean Barbara. I use a dab of alcohol on some cotton wool/cotton bud to dab it away.  I mean the alcohol you buy from the chemist or over here it is sold in the supermarket with the toiletries. Smiley

I've had that problem, but it's never been bad enough to throw the card away.
Have you tried nail varnish remover?

Thanks for the suggestions ladies.  Smiley Will give them a try on a card I made yesterday. I was so pleased with it when I made it but then after I put it away for the glue to dry and saw the shiny bits I was so disappointed. Thanks again.

What about the glue erasers that Joanna Sheen sells?  I haven't tried one so I don't know, but they're not expensive & may save your cards from going in the bin!!!
