Dryer sheets?

Yes!  Dryer sheets! 

Hello there friends!  Today I have a card that I made using a dryer sheet.  My friend Jen sent me a link to a technique using dryer sheets and this is one of the cards I made.

I don't use dryer sheets, so Jen was also nice enough to give me some of her used ones and a couple new ones too. 

After a little experimenting with different stamps, I found this one worked great.
I cut a used dryer sheet down to size and wrapped it around a piece of white card stock, adhering it to the back with ATG Tape.

Then I used my favorite VersaFine ink to stamp the flowers.

The image is from the "In Bloom" set from Scrappy Cat.
I used water color crayons to color the flowers.

Once this was done it was just a matter of layering the card and adding the ribbon and bow.

I do love how this card turned out. 
If you see the card "in person" it has a soft look to it and I love that kind of fabric look/feel that it has.
I will be doing more experimenting with dryer sheets and let you see how they turn out.

Thanks to Jen for giving me this idea!  I'm loving it!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you get some inspiration from my blog and maybe will try something different and out of the box sometime soon.
Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.  Tell me what 'different' supplies you use in your crafting.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
