Layers of Color / Guest DT

Hello!  I told you I would be back.  I have been waiting to share a few things with you all.  One of them is that I will be guest designing for the month of December at Layers of Color.  The very sweet and talented Laura asked me to design some cards using her wonderful stamps.  I totally fell in love with the beautiful butterflies from Butterfly Collector.
I used a technique for this card I saw on Beate's blog at Splitcoast stampers.  This is called the dryer sheet technique.  I stamped my image and colored it with Copics then adhered a used dryer sheet and rubbed glitter all over the image.  It really softens the image wonderfully. 
 I used some Basic Grey Capella paper I have been hoarding for a few weeks now along with some lace and distressed seam binding from Memrie Mare Etsy.  The Spellbinders dies are Labels 10.  A little machine stitching and a button make up all the shabby details.

I am honored to be featured along with her very talented designers.  You can take a look HERE and there is a link to all the fabulous blogs of her designers.  Thank you Laura for this opportunity.

Shelley Germann said...

How beautiful, Heather! All your elements with this super technique make for another stunning creation! I admit I have thought of trying the dryer sheet thing MANY times before. I'll collect a stack of sheets, I get tired of looking at them, I throw them out! Maybe this will be the time it will STICK!

Hope things have settled since your move and no more spider discoveries!

MariLynn said...
