I thought I’d like the color combo of the photo and I had the thought that I have just the right papers in my stash. Here’s what I did:
This card could go happily masculine or feminine.
Designer Paper - I can only identify the yellow, its ‘Apron Strings’ by Bella Road
It came together nicely - I just made lots of layers, and elevated things using foam tape.
Which led me to a happy HAPPY discovery along the journey which I will share with you here:
RECOLOR (inexpensive) GEMS!
I found myself once again without a particular colored gem and thought ho-hummy, and thinking I now had to make an especial trip to the local dollar store and hope like mad they carry the color I want. Or, find an alternative for now and wait till I get to a real scrapbooking store in a larger center (one of the cons of living ruralish)
Then my brilliant little brain (it goes through phases haha!) -I hit the payload for I discovered that I could RECOLOR my inexpensive dollar store silver gems using either a sharpie or my TomBow markers! Woo hoo! The possibilities are endless!
I hope this idea inspires you and saves you some money even. I think what excites me is to know that I can custom colour my gems to almost identically match my TomBow coloring projects.
