CCEE1326 - Dryer Sheet Flower

Brenda started off her month as hostess of the CCEE Stampers challenges with a technique I rarely use, and she's ending it with a technique I have never used -- Dryer Sheet Flower.  She gave us a link to the Splitcoaststampers tutorial, which I definitely had to check out.   After you have cut out the shapes from the dryer sheet, the instructions tell you to spray them with spray ink or shimmer mist.  Unfortunately, I had neither; so I put on my thinking cap.  I took a small mister filled with water and added some purple reinker.  Guess what -- it worked!  Also new to me was the Decorative Labels One die, which I really like.   I've had the Floral Flourishes dies for a while, but this was the first time I used them.

Stop on over at the CCEE Stampers blog to see all the pretty dryer sheet flowers.

Great job with the flower, Lois. Sounds as if I did challenge you this month..with two of the challenges, at least. The re-inker and mister did the trick. Very pretty indeed.

Beautiful card, Lois. Love the purple and green combo!

Sometimes I think our best results come from using what we have and adapting it. I love your purple flower and the wonderful panel with the nestie and flourish!

Just beautiful, Lois! I only have a purchased mist in one neutral colour, so for sprays I always make my own with re-inkers and maybe some Perfect Pearls in a mister. I'm glad your daughter had dryer sheets so you didn't have to do any more improvising! I love your colours, and your new dies.

Beautiful and elegant and your flower looks lovely! I really like the scalloped edges.

Just gorgeous, Lois. Look at the beautiful layers you have on your flower and the stickles. Great job!
