  5. my favorite embellishment are sequins, although i love the enamel dots i find them too expensive for me :-( i used sequins or fake (homemade) enamel dots the most, but also rhinestones and or adhesive pearl, which might be a tip for you..I stuck one of those pearls on the mini mister so i can identify it amongst my other misters

  15. This series has been so informative and not at all good on my purse, aha! My favourite embellishment by far is a white gel pen, it can brings so much life and depth to an image and it looks great as dash lines on a darker card stock! I've also started getting into making shaker cards and popping a few sequins here and there so this giveaway is awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I just love the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush - thanks for the fab series - have a happy and healthy New Year
