A simple and INEXPENSIVE way to re-create this type of flourish is shown in the following tutorial posted by Gabrielle Pollacco. http://mycreativescrapbook.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=499

I think I'm going to have to go buy a few bottles of the pearlized puffy paint for these little beauties!!!

There is also a Zva Creative rhinestone flourish in the Romance Add-On Kit...

  4. Here's an idea use SCAL2 or MTC to evenly place your rhinestones on a swirl! I also shared that you can use a scalloped image in Cricut DS to create a pattern here: http://cricutcraftyclare.blogspot.com/2011/01/creating-rhinestone-templates-with-your.html

    I have also use Stickles instead of pearly paint, and it comes out looking more blingy like gems.

  6. I have some perfect pearls I can use. I think I will use my Bazzill fluorish sewing template as a guide. I have made my own dew drops with hot glue before and the effects are quite nice.
