Tip Time #2

I just figured out the COOLEST thing because I was in a little bit of a bind.  In the post below, I showed you all a card with a pink tree.  The rhinestones on that card are what inspired this tip and I think people will really like it!

I wanted to do a monochromatic pink card, but I have NO pink rhinestones.  I have recently picked up a TON of clear rhinestones in the one dollar section at Michael's.  I put these clear rhinestones on the card and they didn't look quite right.  So, I just grabbed one of the markers I was using for my card and colored the rhinestones.  

I let the rhinestones dry for a bit and ran my finger over them.  To my surprise, the color stayed on them!  I just used my regular Marvy markers!  So, after a few more minutes, I gave the rhinestones another coat of color and let them dry.  I am so happy with how they turned out!

If you are ever in a bind and need colored rhinestones, now you know what to do!  Just break out some of your favorite markers and get to coloring!  How fast and easy is that?
