DIY crystal swirls

When making my DT card for the latest challenge over at The Paper Shelter I decided to use Meiflower black stick on gems to make some swirls to fill a couple of blank areas.

You can see the swirls at the top left and bottom right of my image.

I made the gem swirls by cutting a piece of plain card to the size of the area I wanted the swirl to go, I  drew a swirl onto the card with a pencil and used my pricking tool to punch holes through the swirl design at regular intervals. I then used this as a template, placing it onto the card and drawing a dot through each of the holes with a propelling pencil, I removed the card and stuck a gem to each dot and et voila! I had my swirls.

Give it a try, it was really easy.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look,
