Cards - Michelle

Bling It ! - January Tutorial

What better way to jazz up your chipboard, than BLING !
Here is a simple tutorial on how to make your 2Crafty Chipboard sparkly, shiny and bling bling, when you want or need to ! I have used 2Crafty Funky Snowflakes.

You will need:

2Crafty Chipboard
Glimmer Mist or Glitter or Kindy Glitz
Bling (I have used Kaisercraft Rhinestones)

To ensure good coverage and a deeper or brighter colouring, I ink the chipboard in a similar colour to my mists, first.

I allow the ink to dry, then I spray the chipboard liberally with my mists. This would be the time to add glitter of Kindyglitz if using those instead.

Again, I allow drying time. Then I add the rhinestones. In this case I have used the same, or similar colours to the mists and inks, but you can use different colours for a different look. I have used the Funky Snowflakes to make some VERY quick and easy Christmas Cards (trying to get a head start LOL !). It's also a great way to use up sticker and die cut sheets.

Unfortunately, it's a bit of a dull day here, and the bling hasn't photographed as well as it could. I hope this has given you some ideas, and I look forward to seeing some BLING on chipboard, in the future !
Until next time - Happy Scrapping !
