I colored most of the images at last weeks Thursdays stamping get together. I do this alot because I can concentrate on coloring and assemble the cards at home. Much easier, I don't have to carry so much.
The image was colored with Copic Markers of course on Cryogen cardstock. I love the hidden sparkle of this paper. The image and the mat were cut out using the "Spellbinders" die "Label Seven" and embossed the image mat with a "Cuddlebug" embossing folder.
For the embelishments I attached twelve swarovski pink crystals using a tool simular to the very popular "I-Rock". Very simple to use.
Hint: When you want to place crystals evenly spaced, I find that if you take a piece of 7-count plastic canvas you can get you spacing of the crystals very even and centered. Just place the plastic canvas on the space you want to put the emblishment in and count to hole. A small pencil maker will help you place the crystals.
The hearts and the glass where covered with "Crystal Lacquer" gives a little depth and shine.
If you have questions about this card, leave a comment and your email address, and I will answer you promptly.
Have a GREAT DAY!!!
