Bling it


Hello, hopefully you are back into the swing of things and are happily joining us here at Southern Girls. For those of you that have kids, I hope it all went well on their first day back at school.
Ok, so this fortnight the theme is for all all you crafters that like to see lots of "bling".
This round we have 2 lovely sponsors

Scrap of Bull with a great prize pack

AND
Marianne Design 



I had a play this time with my Distress Ink markers that I've had for a wee while ( like over a year!LOL!) and never really touched them. Took a bit of getting used to but I think I love them! Just have to remind myself "don't overwet the paper or everything bleeds" .....!!!! 

I used a couple of different dies to embellish my card but had trouble cos I lost my C plate for my cuttlebug!!!!!!  Yep, found it the next day after it was TOOOOOOO late. Anyway the dies are Marianne Creatables LR0156 & LR0017.

And for a different take on bling, I used nail polish on my large chipboard butterfly thanks to a suggestion by a fellow crafter (clever Amanda) and it looks very cool IRL!!!!!
