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.
- hand sanitizer or hair gel
- small zip lock bag
- glitter or mica chips
- aqua or light blue alcohol ink or re-inker
- die cut for window -- I used an oval Nestibilities die
- white cardstock
- patterned paper
- 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!
