DragonsdreamTIO # 55 - Bead-Dazzle

Had lots of fun making these beads in the melt pot not so much fun trying to photograph them. This is the best of a poor bunch of photos. To make the beads I wrapped a thin strip of blue paper round a wire and dipped it several times into melted clear UTEE. I joined the three beads together with leaves cut from a blue green Artylicious paper from Shades of Italy. This little spray was then attached to a tag. To make the tag I distressed a piece of satin card with distress inks, Antique Linen, Weathered Wood and Broken China. I then stamped using Broken China, a foam stamp from La Blanche. A Martha Stewart loop punch and blue green ribbon completed the tag. Think I could become addicted to making beads like this.
Thank you for taking a look, any comments you leave are much appreciated.
