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.
