When I saw the card that Dawn McVey had made for Mothers Day, I really did gasp outloud. It was my mother from top to bottom, so whats a girl to do except CASE it??
Well......here comes the bright idea. I didn't have any purple rhinestones to use and since our weather has been horrendous(snow, snow and more snow) I haven't been able to stop at my Local Scrapbook Store. I know many have used their Copic markers to color rhinestones, but since I am new to all of this I haven't ventured down that path yet. Soooo much other basics I want to get first. I made this card and thought I would just wait till better weather to get my rhinestones, but oh no. Once I had it this far I couldn't wait so therefore here comes this idea. Have you ever used your ink pads to "color" your rhinestones. Works like a charm. I cut my rhinestones from the clear acrylic trying to leave a bit of the acrylic to hold onto.
Next I just turned them upside down on the inkpad, and pressed them into the ink with my bone folder.
Waalaa........purple rhinestones, check out my card at the beginning of this post.
