I see your true color, BLINGIN' through!

It's a rare card that I create these days that doesn't look a WHOLE lot finer
with the addition of Want2ScrapTM BLING! {Pssst! EVERYTHING looks better
with B L I N G! - but you know THAT already!} There's a shape and color for
NEARLY every occasion and subject matter: I'll testify to THAT, for sure!

But.... once in a while... I do find a color scheme that challenges my
more-than-handsome stash of Want2ScrapTM BLING and sometimes,
in a pinch, I need a bit more color.... {*Gasp!*} Not that there aren't
enough choices, mind you... and cue exhibit A, my glorious stash of

NestablingTM! {Bling*Bling!}

However, once in a while, if I don't have the right hue for WHAT I need to do....

I just DON'T stress, because here's what to do...

Grab some alcohol ink, mixed just as you please, and then dab-away, dab-away...
until it's just as you need! Colorful color in THE perfect tone...
It's perfect I tell ya, and it's as easy as SHOWN!

For more accurate bling color customizing, your fave permanent ink marker
can work wonders on our "free floaters' like the 72 Count and BabyBling swatches!
To get these GORGEOUS gems a tad darker for my needs, a darker blue in two
applications did just the trick!

And after two "coats"....

So, hoard and gather and curate your bling, but if you're in a color bind -

.....now YOU know JUST THE THING....!

{This custom-colored bling, might even make YOU sing!}

Here's hoping YOUR day is filled with sparkle!
And here's to getting JUST the right HUE for YOU!

Bling ON, crafty friends.... BLING ONNNNNN!
