Each weekend I eagerly check in with my favourite CAS sites, Less is More and Addicted to CAS, to see if I can enter their challenges. This week I have tried to combine Less is More Week 112, which is to use Beads, and ATCAS week #9 challenge which is Spring. I have a lovely new stamp set from Annabelle Stamps called Stemmed Flowers, which I definitely wanted to use for Spring, but the beads - arghh! I decided to keep the beads just for the flowers, and put giant ones in the centres, in place of the buttons I would normally use. I think they quite suit the flowers now, and adhered them securely with red line tape, after I pierced the centre of the flower to allow for the prominent point of the bead to go through to the back of the panel. I resisted using beads on the butterfly, as it would have been too heavy a look.
