Madelynn’s challenge this week was to use rhinestones! YEAH! I love rhinestones! And nice and easy ‘cause I could use rhinestones on so many different cards! I had a wedding set by MFT on my desk because I stamped some images for Kimmie so I used that. Easy Peasy right? We’ve been invited to a wedding in October so I can save it until then.
You can’t tell from the picture (YEAH) but there is a small goof. For some reason, my Copic clear blender makes my Adirondack ink bleed. AHHH! It is very slight because I only used a tiny bit of it along the right edge of the bride’s dress so I could blend in a tiny bit of B00 shading. I have no idea why it is bleeding when it never used to. Frustrating. It didn’t bleed when I coloured the hair or bouquet. The paper is shimmery white and the other layer is gold. You can just see that I embossed a rectangular Nestie into the top layer. It was so easy. Just beware that the Eclipse tape I used also left an embossed mark. It is faint but there (goof #2). Next time, I’ll have to get a magnetic sheet by Wizard to keep it in place. (Not for a while, my hubby is on strike. CRAP!) I will also use a darker pink or gold embossing on the sentiment next time. I used 6 pale pink rhinestones on the card, 5 clear Tiny Twinkles on the dress and one soft green Twinkle in her hair. Gotta love those little Twinkles!
Be sure to visit all of the Twinklettes to see their beautiful cards. We’d love it if you’d play along! Be sure to upload to SCS or PCP with MTTSC28 or upload to your blog. Then link to Madelynn’s blog, Twinkling Tuesdays so we can all see your work! I sure hope you will play along.
