Sweet Stamps-Monthly Technique Challenge- Dryer Sheet Technique

The Sweet Stamps Challenge this Month is The Dryer Sheet Technique.
  
 I think this may be my first time trying this technique : )  It was quick and easy.  I masked the Poinsettia and leaf image and made a floral spray with three flowers. I used Copic markers for coloring. I put the image- face down thru the Xyron, then added the dryer sheet and glitter.

 I sure hope you will come join us for the challenge- it runs for an entire month- from 7/15 thru 8/14- so you have plenty of time to join us.


Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:
Poinsettia & Holly Leaf Duo HERE
White Dye Ink HERE
White Embossing Powder HERE
Elegant Leaves SweetCuts Die HERE 
Joy Crafts Little Label and Tags Die HERE
Bo Bunny Father Christmas DP HERE
Coordinations Cardstock Scarlet (Classy Reds) HERE
Copic Markers  ( Rosey Reds, Harvest Gold, Victorian Green, Warm Shadow) HERE
Sparkley Ultrafine Transparent Glitter HERE

Double Line Tape HERE

I hope you will join in the challenge!  You cannot win if you don't play!!!  And, if you use a Sweet Stamps image- you will receive an additional chance to win! The winner is chosen by Random.org- so everyone has a chance to win!
