Dryer sheet technique

For this week's workshop wow challenge, we are doing the dryer sheet technique. We use a used dryer sheet, which is a great way to recycle! You stamp an image, coat the cardstock with adhesive, press on a used dryer sheet and sprinkle the whole thing with glitter. The glitter sticks to the adhesive through the holes in the dryer sheet. It's a very soft, sparkly effect!
For my snowflakes, I inked up the stamp with bordering blue and then used a sponge dauber to add spots of whisper white for a variegated look.
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Best Wishes and More; Paper: Whisper White, Bordering Blue, Not Quite Navy; Ink: Whisper White craft, Bordering Blue, Not Quite Navy; Accessories: jumbo grommets, 1/2" circle punch, white satin ribbon, mono multi, dazzling diamonds, dryer sheet
Happy stamping!

Beautiful, great use of the jumbo grommet. I struggle with using them.
