Custom Crystals...

A while back I was having issues with Prima only making select colored crystals. Well I decided to get creative, and being the resourceful mama that I am I busted out the fun stuff and came up with these.




Yup, It was that simple... sharpies and clear crystals and Voila! You have custom crystals. I haven't used alcohol inks (but you know I thought of it!LOL!) but my sweet bud Trish mentioned it works fabulously!! And I must add, that I just did a quick color right on top of the crystal.

You will also notice on the card that I that I ventured into custom flowers too! Take a black and white Prima and some watercolor pencils and again, Voila! You have a one of a kind masterpiece. This flower came from the twilight tin, but I have used the artful collage flowers too. Oh and I do need to mention that the artful collage flowers look AMAZING with glimmer mist. My favorite guilty pleasure. I should also thank Trish for creating my new found addiction to these wonderful gems.


So here is to seeing what kinda custom things you come up with! Keep me posted~
