This week the site "Less is More" gave the challenge to use beads, here is my creation;
When I first saw this challenge I thought " now that really IS a challenge!" How do you put a bead on a card, besides using glue? Now I realize I COULD use glue, but I didn't want to. I spotted some stamps I recently purchased from Michaels, a Seven Gypsies collection that contained several different numbers sets and knew I wanted to work with them. After stamping the cute numbers I played off the numbers idea by attaching wires to the card, 9 of them. I bent the wire to create a hook of sorts on both ends that looped around the card. I strung seed beads on each wire, 1, then 2, then 3, etc etc, then I taped the ends on the back side. I mounted the bead card onto playful polka dot paper, went to the computer and typed out the sentiment and then cut and pasted it...Voila!
I love the way it turned out!
