OLW96: Birthday Blings
Last minute decision to 'bling' up my DT card that I made for the Unscripted Sketches challenge and enter it into the One Layer Wednesday challenge at Susan's Simplicity blog..
I seldom 'bling' things up and if I do it is minimal. So this card, in my usually blingless world, has a whole lot of bling! It is hard to tell in the photo, but the four dots inside the smaller flower are blinged up with some sparkle dust colored with a Copic marker. The three rhinestones have also been colored with the same color. The stones do lose a bit of their sparkle when they have been colored, but plain silver bling just didn't cut it on this card.
Two very important lessons learned here:
1) Always, ALWAYS use the stamp positioning tool on a finished card....especially when not wearing glasses
2) test the green ink color of the sentiment before stamping on a finished card!
Scroll down to my Unscripted Sketch post to get the rest of the details on my card.
