Soft Spring ----Glass Beads on Art Piece

I wanted to apply a used dryer sheet on my art piece - but for once I had thrown them all out.  Isn't that usually the case!  Once you throw something that's been cluttering your space you find you need it.

So I looked around for a substitute, and notice a container of tiny, tiny sugar beads (0.6 to 0.8 mm). The sugar beads give the art piece a soft romantic look, or the look of a foggy spring morning (depending on the mood you're in)

Soft Spring is a double stamping photopolymer Hostess stamp set.  I opted not to use the double stamping option.  I like to colour, and Stampin' Blends were used here.

The images were stamped with Black Memento ink on a 2 7/8 by 5" piece of Whisper White card stock and coloured with Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends.  To high light the images, the Light Seaside Spray Stampin' Blend was used to colour around the images.

Using a piece of card board the size of a credit card, tombo glue was spread over the entire surface.  Sugar beads were then added and allowed to dry, after which a fixative was sprayed on.

After matting this art piece with Gorgeous Grape card stock it was added to a Highland Heather card base the front of which was embossed with the Parisian Embossing Folder. The sentiment, from "Peaceful Moments", stamped with Gorgeous Grape ink, was added vertical to the art piece using dimensionals.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Soft Spring, Peaceful Moments
Inks Black Memento, Stampin' Blends (Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Seaside Spray), Gorgeous Grape
Accessories:  Parisian Embossing Folder, Sugar Beads (0.6 to 0.8 mm), dimensionals
