Bling it On, Baby!


Our i {heart} papers design team was challenged to create a card with bling! Can there be TOO much bling?! This card is definitely blinging every which way, so the answer certainly could be yes!

The inspiration for this card came from two sources...this sparkly SEI Lovebirds designer paper and a Hero Arts stamp set that comes with its own bling right in the package! I stamped the image using Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it in with Copic markers in several shades of pink. I colored in a faint background using prismas and Gamsol. The butterfly and sentiment were stamped in Regal Rose. Then I used a matching marker to make a little twisting trail. All of the leaves and the butterfly's wings were colored with a clear Copic spica glitter pen to give them some sparkle to match the rest of the card. I used some circle nestabilities along with Labels 3 to cut and emboss the image. The pink rhinestones are from the stamp set (and there are still several colors of rhinestones left for more projects)! I used a lacy edge punch to dress up a strip of regal rose...even the pink and aqua ribbon trim is glitsy!

Be sure to visit my ihp DT mates' blogs to see all of their sparkling creations!
