Keep your fingers crossed . . . I brought a new modem home this evening and have been on line since I hooked it up tonight. I hope this is the end of my computer woes. Just in time to participate in the newest challenge for Timeless Tuesday (FTTC14), hosted by Betty Wright this week. Betty is challenging us to use beads on our card. There are all kinds of shapes and sizes as well as materials that beads come in. You can choose from the tiniest microbeads to the largest you can find to add to your card; halfback beads count too!!! There are glass beads, plastic beads, wooden beads, clay beads and paper beads to name a few. So bead it girls!! We cannot wait to see what you do with this one!
I pulled out my Copics to play this week and savored the opportunity to work with the Flourishes Sweet Peas set. I let my SEI Mimosa design paper dictate the palette of soft pinks and peaches – I love that palette, it is one of my very favorites. After coloring, I cut my main panel into several stacking panels instead of just one large oval with Spellbinders Petite Ovals Large and Spellbinders Petite Ovals Small backed by Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Ovals Large. Lastly I picked the sentiment, you inspire me, from the Flourishes Sweet Violets set. I framed it with Spellbinders Petite Ovals Large and Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Ovals Large. Two layers of ribbon and a couple of pearls (my beads for the challenge) finish the card off.
Check out what the other Friends of Flourishes have cooked up using beads!
Thanks for stopping by – I hope you are full of spring fever just as I am. These days are glorious!
