Use Beads - Fab n Funky

For our challenge at Fab n Funky this week  Rachel has set the challenge of using BEADS on your project.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Digi Darla Designs who very kindly gave the DT some images to play with.

I decided to use the Dandelion and had the idea of using the dandelion image as a background, as it is a digi image it was real easy to resize the image; flip it and turn it. I printed the background on plain paper and then used distress inks, I used Salty Ocean and Evergreen Bough which I applied with a dusting brush to give a very pale background. 

My idea for the card was to keep it simple and add a butterfly to the background using microbeads as the body, I so didnt like it when I had done it that I had to do a quick rethink and went with the tall bride and groom instead.
