Lets see some beads

'Lets see some Beads', is the new challenge at Try it on Tuesdays.
We hope that you will all search out any of these large or small embellies and come join the fun. There is also a design Team call, we wonder if you would like to join us.
It could even be a necklace, I remember my mum saying don't touch my beads.

So this hanging has a base that I had made previously and didn't finish. It was corrugated card  peeled back painted a few times and looked generally messy. So I painted it  with acrylics, Toad in the Hole and Irish Cream, great names for paint.

The flower was covered in seed beads and a bit of gold Frantage embossing powder.
The stamps I used were by  Lynne Perella and Chapel Road Art.
All the other additions came from by stash.

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is -Anything Goes this week, so I will be off to join the fun over there as well.

Thank you for stopping by, I always appreciate your comments.
