Dryer Sheet Texture

A few years ago there was technique going around that featured stamped scenes with a used dryer sheet glued over the top and glitter added.  I tried it, but found it dulled my stamping more than I liked. After experimenting for a while I came up with a different way to use them. I love the texture they added to my big stamped flowers. (To see a tutorial for making these fun, fuzzy flowers visit the Cropstop blog where you'll find full instructions!)
 To make my cards, I stamped the Flora Grande 2 (Heartfelt Creations) small flower in Pink Lipstick Distress Oxide ink on watercolor paper and splashed it up a bit using my paintbrush, water, and distress oxide.  Next I cut a strip of white cardstock and punched both sides with the embroidered lace border punch from Martha Stewart. Down the middle of my punched piece I added a strip of washi tape.  I used some tiny seed beads to embellish the center of my dryer sheet flower before adhering it to the center of my card.
 Inside I stamped a sentiment from the All Things Are Possible set (Heartfelt Creations) and colored parts of it in with my Prismacolor Pencils. I punched a few tiny flowers with my Scalloped Daisy Border punch (Fiskars) to finish it off.
I loved to see how you use this fun technique, so stop by the CURRENT CHALLENGE and link up your creations that use products from companies carried in the Cropstop store. Hope to see you there…
