WARNING.........High Bling Alert!

I had so much fun with the JUST ADD BLING ... and PINK! for Just Add Ink #38 over the weekend that I decided to give it another go.

I have to warn you, that you are entering into a high bling area!! *smile*

Here's my card -

And a close up of the background -

See how the glitter is only on the background and not on the raised polka dots? To do that I rubbed my versamark pad all over the side of the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder without the raised dots. I then placed my card stock inside and put it through the Big Shot. Then I heat embossed with the heat and stick powder, added the Dazzling Diamonds and then heated again. You can also do it with a coloured ink pad to give your card stock a two-coloured effect the same as my card here. 

If you have any questions on this card or any others on my blog please feel free email me. I'll do my best to answer your questions *smiles*

Thanks for visiting!
