Capitulating to the season change -- with beads



I've never looked forward to Fall, because that means Winter isn't far behind. However, I have grown to love the colors of a beautiful autumn season. My first fall card features ultrafine microbeads, my favorite size of clear beads to use. Since Suzanne at Pennywise Arts started carrying them, I've never been without. The leaves were stamped and colored with Copic markers; then I stamped paperback double-stick tape with the leaves, cut them out and applied the sticky to the colored leaves. After that, I smooshed them into ultrafine beads for this crystal sugar effect. I'll admit it: I can't stop the seasons!

Beautiful color job on the leaves, E!! You're becoming a Copic wizard. Love the whole card. The whole effect is quite pleasing to the eye. Denise

I love Fall and the colors of the season too! Your cards always have beautiful composition Evelyn, I especially love the texture that micro beads add and the black layers underneath really make your image "pop"! Thanks for the link too, I always appreciate help in "beading the world!"
Hugs, Suzanne
