Bling, Bling


CAS-ual Fridays Challenge # 3 is all about bringing the bling and I can definitely say that I brought the bling, even in a bigger way than I anticipated. It all started when I brought out my little baggy of mixed rhinestones to see what I could come up with, and emptied it on my desk. I liked the way they looked when they fell on the desk then I tried to bring them a bit more together and I really liked how that looked too. It's just the way I placed them on the card. It was not as tedious as you might think.

Just the way they layed on the desk, I placed a strip of painters tape right over then and worked my fingers to make sure all of them got on the tape. Then I picked the piece of tape with the rhinestones on it and adhered score tape on the back of the rhinestones. Then with the rhinestiones still on the painters tape I adhered them to the cardstock, worked my fingers to make sure they got all onto the card stock, slowly pulled the painters tape and ta da! You get what you see on my card. I finished by stamping this gorgeous sentiment and adding one last bit on bling to the "i".


Thanks for stopping by
