Here's what I made "putting a bling on"...
I am LOVING to bling up cards...if you look at one of my favorite card companies  Papyrus  (Ive chosen just one page of their cool cards to look at if you have a chance..at least 1/2 or more on this page are BLINGED up!!!), they are FULL of bling!!  Bling is Big...so the only challenge to this challenge for me was deciding WHAT to bling:)!! I chose a fish stamp from Unity(Fishy Philosophy) and a sentiment from Hero Arts(Oceans of Joy).  I stamped the main fish in versamark, embossed with silver and cut out . I then colored his side and tail fins with a silver pen (PenTouch).  I filled in his body with yellow and orange rhinestones, a black stick on dot for his eye.  I then stamped the other fish in light gray added the masked pieced sentiment and added the popped up fish with 3 teal colored rhinestones for water/air bubbles.   It's all layered on a gray bazzill card.  I sent this to my beautiful daughter Hannah, for her birthday...she LOVES goldfish...love you, honey!!!...bling is such fun!!  Hope you will check out the wonderful inspiration from the CAS-ual Fridays blog as well as the CAS-ual Fridays Facebook team(I'm there, too:)!!!) and play along with all of us this week:)!!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
