What a fab Dare Lynda set us to start the new year with a bang! Its Bling and Beads!
My Bling turned out to be quite black tie in the end, I didn't mean that to happen, I had all my coloured bits strewn across my desk (well ok, across the whole room if I'm honest) loads of multi coloured papers out wire and thread, stamps and chalks as well as sequins, beads and gems, and ended picking all the clear ones out of a mixed packet of mini gems and using an offcut of black card. Isn't creativity a funny thing the plainest simplest bits of card can sometimes be the most inspiring. Still Im glad Ive got my pretty paper stash!
For the words I used Papermania rubons which I bought today on a total whim, and I really like the effect, bargain at 99p a sheet too! Sizzlits die cut heart, black card, gems and eyelets all from stash. I also tried to do a clever photoshop thing to show the sparkle better, but couldn't get it to look right so you'll just have to imagine the sparkliness, unless you're a photoshop pro and have any top tips! Its just like when the good guy in a film has a big shiney sparkle on his teeth so you can tell he's the hero.
I still haven't made any more thank you cards and have my friends wedding invites to finalise as well as all the usual stuff so if I'm on the pc too much give me a kick and remind me about that long to do list I have! Happy Cardmaking!
