Modern Heart for CASology 360 Guest Design

Just before Christmas, I was delighted to be chosen as the winner at CASology with this card, using Friend Like You. As an added bonus, I was asked to be guest designer this week!

 The cue card this week is CRYSTAL, which I'll admit did throw me a little!

So after dismissing crystal glasses, I got to thinking about the crystalline structure of this heart stamp from Modern Heart and decided to use that.

After dripping some diluted ink into the wet, embossed outline and letting it dry, I added some Wink of Stella for a bit more crystalline shine. Finally, I added a couple of rhinestone crystals to emphasise the sentiment. 

I liked the idea so tried it out with a blue variation. This one is coloured with a mix of different blue Stampin' Blends. The rhinestones have been coloured with a Dark Night of Navy Stampin' Blend. It was hard to choose between them. Do you have a favourite?

I'll be really interested to see how other people have interpreted the cue word, CRYSTAL and look forward to seeing the entries.
