SOS Challenge #9 - Technique Turn Back

Boy was I super excited when I found out about Challenge #9 at SOS (Shopping our Stash) Challenge Blog!  It's called Technique Turn Back:

Challenge 9- July 19 Technique Turn back- do you have some supplies gathering dust for a special technique that you haven't used in awhile (or ever)?  Perhaps some Dreamweaver stencils, quilling, alcohol inks, shaving cream backgrounds, brayer techniques,  melted crayon backgrounds, microfine glitter and scor-tape, even coloring with a different medium than you usually use?   Dust off those supplies and create something new!  You aren't limited to those suggestions, but be sure to tell us what technique you are using.

I was excited because not only did I know which technique I was going to use but also because I couldn't wait to see what the other girls would come up with.  They had some great ideas & I can't wait to try out some new techniques.  For my card I decided to use the technique called "Glitter Masking with Outline Stickers" & HERE is the link to the tutorial I used.

The tutorial was really easy to follow & I've had the outline stickers for quite some time now as well as the glitter so it was nice to finally use them up.  The hardest part of the whole thing was deciding which colours to put in each section!  I really love the way it turned out & I kept the card fairly simple just pairing up with my Bo Bunny paper & adding a few sparkly rhinestone brads.  I will definitely be doing more of these.

I will be entering my card into the following challenges:

I hope you'll play along with us at Shopping our Stash this week so I can learn a few techniques to try!
