Night Snow at the Cabin

Aloha!

I wanted to try using the used, dryer sheet glitter method.

Technique:

First I stamped and colored/sponged the image. Then I took a used dryer sheet (you may find that yours needs a tiny bit of ironing first - mine did), cut it down with scissors just a bit larger than the image, sprayed the dryer sheet with adhesive, laid this carefully over the image and smoothed it out. Fold the excess behind the layer of cardstock (you need to cut part of the bulky corner dryer sheet off for the cardstock layer to lay flat). Then I poured glitter over the adhesive covered image (use a piece of clean paper to catch the excess glitter and pour it back into your container). And then I was pretty much done. Looks like a lot more work, huh?

PS  This is IMPORTANT -- use throw away scratch paper (and preferably disposable gloves) when spraying the adhesive and smoothing the sticky dryer sheet over the image/cardstock -- trust me, the splat mat thingeys and your hands will get all goopy sticky so it's better to prevent the mess.
