DCM - Beady Eyed (again!)


Whilst browsing through all the fab beady cards on the DCM site I found some really inspirational work by Natty Iloved the way she used the pattern on the paper as the base for her bead pattern. I was so inspired I had to have a go myself.
This is my second entry this week the last one was one I had previously made so I thought it was time to get making a fresh one for the dare and here it is, inpired by Natty..................
It's hard to see it clearly in the photo but the middle flower is filled with micro beads. I'm quite pleased with the effect.

Oh that is simply lovely - it's really addictive the beading isn't it? But I think I'll be saving it for special cards! My poor thumb needs to recover from the beading needle. hehe
