Fun with microbeads


My stamp club ladies wanted to try making a card with microbeads. I don't know if you can even see it on this card but it is on the flower. I colored the flower with a regal rose ink pad and blender pen and then colored over it with crystal effects. Then I poured microbeads over the crystal effects and let it dry. It's a quick and easy way to kick your cards up a notch! Give it a try and let me know how it works for you.

Stamp set: Fun and Fast Notes(I got this set at convention. I just love it! I chose to mount the words separate from the image. I have found it is quite easy to line up with the words under the image if you like but you have the flexibility to use them separately.
