Tuesday's Tip # 3

Have I told you...
That I'm in love with the Basic Rhinestones and the Basic Pearls.
Especially the very tiny pearls.
I'm using them on nearly everything.
 Tuesday Tip
Both the Pearls and Rhinestone have adhesive on the back.
The instructions tell to gently peel from backing, been careful not to touch the adhesive or they will lose some of there tackiness, easier said than done .
So the best way I have found to remove them is to use your Scalpel Blade, poke the tip of the blade just under the Pearl or Rhinestone then you can remove it without touching it and adhere to your creation.
This the card that we made last night at a workshop as our 'Make 'n' Take'.
You guessed it, it has Basic Pearls on the Butterflies.
We also used Shimmer Paints and Colour Spritzer Tool.
