CCM #60 Beads

Our challenge for you at Crafty Cardmakers this week is to use beads on your project, or beads as your project! It is hosted by Jack. Don’t forget to stop by and check out her lovely creation and the other team members’ designs.

60 Main

I used a Mo Manning image, which I have coloured with Flexmarkers, and she is matted onto some Basic Grey cardstock, which I have cut with my nesties and also a white layer of paper which I ran through an embossing folder and also trimmed down one side with my newest Marianne die. This is all matted onto more Basic Grey paper.

The floral arrangement are with flowers mainly from Wild Orchid and my beads are in the form of three different hat pins, one of which has had more beads added to it.

60 Floral

I also added some glamour dust to my fairy’s wings and around the edge of the scalloped mat. You can just about see in the pic below that I also chalked directly onto the Happy Birthday mat to highlight the embossing.
