Normally, I'm not a blingy kind of girl, (although I did quite enjoy looking at all the pretty, lacy and blingy undergarments at Victoria's Secret yesterday) but occasionally, I get the urge to go all feminine on my cards. I had a blast playing with these gorgeous rhinestones.
For my first project, I grabbed one of the larger groupings of greenish-blue and green rhinestones and made it the focal point of my card.
You may have noticed that I also used one of the new Seals stamps that Technique Tuesday just released. I added some glitter to the heart in the center using a glue pen.
For my other project, I wanted to showcase another way to use these gorgeous stones. Not only can you use them together, but you can also cut them apart to get individualized bits of bling. See how I've used them on this project:
I brought attention to the details on the wings of this butterfly using that bling. I've also used the watercolor crayons from Technique Tuesday to add that bold and vibrant color.
