I call this a 'grab and go' kind of card. Grab a few stash backgrounds and get going!
Ever since Gracie had the dryer sheet challenge for Falliday, I've wanted to try it. I don't have a Xyron or spray adhesive (well, I did but it's all clogged up) so I used mat medium to adhere a used dryer sheet to an ink smooshed background, I think with DOx sprays. It wasn't very pretty but I like it with the misty dryer sheet over it. Then I rubbed some glitter from Lavinia, a bright green of course. The panel with the birds (which are very faint, used a gold/blue ep) was a piece leftover from another project, I think watercolor. Added some snowy glitter to that (they're spring birds, bemused by a late spring snowstorm) and a simple sentiment.
This is for yesterday's tea party for Theresa (use lots of color) and for today's sketch. Did my best to envision the sketch, mostly using Angella's card.

Cool!! the dryer sheet over the smooshed bg sort of resembles an enhanced photo of our planet. I see continents complete with 3-D topography and pretty blue oceans. Nicely done on this technique - I'm sure this will catch Theresa's fancy, too.
