Use Those Embellishments!

Welcome to Monday's Fresh Squeezed Stamps post!  It's Virginia here! Today's post is all about embellishments. What is your latest love?  Buttons, twine, sequins, pearls, gems, ribbons, washi tape, chipboard, brads, lace, trims...etc? What are embellishments exactly? 

According to Wikipedia, in sewing and crafts, an embellishment is anything that adds design interest to the piece.  Paper, Scissors, Ink is perfect stamp set for adding your favorite embellishments because you can personalize it however you like it!

With a little masking, I stamped the image in three different colors!  After that, I simply added a few sequins, button, twine, gems, washi tape and a tiny bit of ribbon!  I purposely chose bits and pieces of colors and elements to compliment this design. Adding the embellishments is part of the fun!  To me, they are the "eye candy"!
