Beads



Challenge  60 over at Crafty Cardmakers is hosted by Jack and she would like us to use some beads. 
Our  sponsers this time are
  Di's Digi Downloads and  The Stampman [and Lady].
Both offering a super prize, so please pop over to Crafty Cardmakers for all the details and to see what  we have all been making.


I decided to use tiny seed beads on my card. The image is edged with them as are the centre petals of the flower. This wasn't as easy as I thought,  these little devils have a life of their own and much prefer to roll around everywhere  than to stick onto glue. The fashion stamp is by Crafty Individuals. Colouring is watercolours and chalk, with papers from my stash.

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.

  1. your post made me laugh Yvonne, I agree those little beggars have a life of their own , most of mine ended up on the floor and are so tiny I had to get the hoover out ! Love your stylish and classy card. The stamping as always is perfect and your use of the beads is just stunning.
