Sugar Beads

One of the fabulous new additions to the product range at My2Angels is Sugar Beads!  These mixtures of beads are available in great colour combinations and I couldn't resist the mint crush, and of course Purple Passion.  Despite my mojo drought, ideas were popping in my head all the time and I just had to find the time to put some of them to use.

I have seen the beads used to cover chipboard and I wanted to use both the colours of the sugar beads on the one project, so I originally thought purple flowers and green stems or grass.... that developed into a white butterfly with purple wings and a bunch of flowers and the stems of the bunch hmmm...

After painting the butterfly white, letting it dry and attaching it to my card, I filled the wings one at a time with hot glue (from my glue gun) and poured the beads all over it - pressing them in, tapping off the excess and putting them back in the little pot.  I repeated this for all three wings.

The bunch of purple flowers, I added the three rose buds to and wrapped the stems around each other.  I then laid hot glue along the stems and again poured and pressed the beads into it, tapping off the excess.  I use a little more hot glue to attach the bunch to the card - and the bow to the bunch.

I slid the love charm under the edge of the bunch and added some 'movement' to the butterfly with a piece of FWAB chloe purple pearl flourish.
