Get your Markers ready for a TUTORIAL

Do you ever need bling and the colored bling that you love and cherish in your stash just DOES NOT match your project no matter WHAT you do??

Well, have no fear, with your clear diamond type blingy and a Copic marker, you can switch up the colors in no time flat and have that PERFECT matching bling.

What you'll need:
Copic Marker Color of your choice
Clear Bling of your choice
(The ones I used for this are by Hero Arts however bling from JoAnn and Michaels work just as well!)
Take Your Bling (I keep mine on the plastic sheet it comes on until I've achieved the results I'm looking for). 

Now comes the FUN part - COLOR your Bling - you may have to color several times to achieve matching color.

Let dry for a few minutes (doesn't usually take long, but once you've achieved the perfect color, you don't want to miff it up).
Remove from plastic sheet and adhere to said project that needed matching bling and
You'll have to wait until Thursday to see the ENTIRE final product - but here's a little sneaky peek!
***NOTE: This may work with OTHER types of markers other than Copics, but I have only tried it with Copics.  I would THINK that this should work with other alcohol based markers as well.***

Look at that - it's that's easy and you have perfectly matching BLING!  =)  Let me tell you - when I figured this out I was ONE happy girl - NO MORE looking for the perfect shade to match your project and being denied again!!

I hope you give this a try & love it as much as I do!
Hugs & Happy Days!
