The Beauty of Bling!!!

Hello Everyone!!!  Happy New Year to you all!!!  This month the challenge is to use BLING (pearls or rhinestones) on your creation! Link up your Bringing Back Beautiful Challenge creations on the Flourishes Blog to enter. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB18. You have until January 31st to enter! As we unveil our challenge for next month, we’ll share our True Beauties – those card makers who wowed us with this challenge! Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog!


This month I've used Feminine Charm - how CUTE are these shoes, just perfect for kicking up your heels in the new year!!!!  :)  The base is made of white, pink bazzill and two pieces of Sidewalks DP (the top one I've sewn around the edges).  Across the join I've added a piece of white punched with Deco Fan border punch and layered with white crochet lace, pink satin ribbon, a pink bow and white flower.  I've stamped the shoes (twice, using a mask) in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Copic Markers (E50, E51, E53, RV000, RV00, RV32, RV34) then cut out with Small Circle Nestabilities and matted with pink cut with Large Circle Nestabilities.  This panel has been put on a square of Sidewalks DP matted with more pink.  Finally I've added the BLING!!!  I've framed the shoes with Pink Labels 1 Nestabling and then added a few more pink rhinestones in the top corners.  :)
