Technique Tuesday -- Hand Sanitizer

Today for the Sparkle N Sprinkle technique Tuesday I am showing how to use hand sanitizer to make a fun "water" scene on a card.  These type of cards are fun for all ages!  I hope you have fun with this today.

  1. hand sanitizer or hair gel
  2. small zip lock bag
  3. glitter or mica chips
  4. aqua or light blue alcohol ink or re-inker
  5. die cut for window -- I used an oval Nestibilities die
  6. white cardstock
  7. patterned paper
  8. contrasting cardstock
Take the small bag and squirt about a third of a travel size bottle of hand sanitizer into it and seal. You can also use hair gel.

Some hand sanitizers and hair gels come in colors, but I only had clear so I added a few drops of aqua alcohol ink. I wanted the color to be light so that my image would show up better.  I also added some blue/purple mica chips to it . Glitter would work well too.

On white cardstock stamp your image in the middle and color. Then adhere the bag over the image using Tear-ific Tape.

Adhere patterned paper onto white cardstock and cut window using the die.

Using the oval dies, cut a frame from the contrasting color cardstock to place around the window.

Pop dot this layer over the image and embellish. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the technique today. Please stop by next week for a glittery technique!
