Belli Challenge #1
Chrissy D has asked me to be part of her new Wednesday Belli Challenge Design Team. Every week, she will have a challenge featuring an embellishment or a special technique. This week she has issued a Belli BEAD Challenge. The easiest way to use beads on a card is to put them in the center of a flower, as I have done on this card here.
You can adhere beads either with a clear drying glue (Tombow Mono Multi is great), or with a very strong double sided tape. I used a small leftover piece of Terrifically Tacky Tape and punched a small circle out of it, placed it on the brown flower, and dumped some pink microbeads onto it. I like to smush the beads into the tape to make sure they are stuck in there really good.
Your challenge is to make a card with beads. Don't forget to leave a comment on Chrissy's blog HERE with your link to your card. You could win a fantastic prize!!! Go check it out!
