Seriously addicted...

Hi friends! Hello Friday!
I am really fortunate to have a scrappy friend who lives 15 minutes from me. Heidi's work has blown me away since the first day I found her blog. A few weeks ago we were scrapping together and I was checking out some of her recent layouts and noticed this fab embellie that she had on one, so I asked her about it and that's when I learned about micro beads. She told me how to use them and I picked up my first bottle with a coupon of course from Michaels. Well I'm hooked! I got the color pack that Martha Stewart has and they are just awesome. I used them to create this week's Get Sketchy card!
Here's Sketch #20

This week's sponsor is...


You can win a fabulous prize pack if you play along with our sketch. Now here's my card.


Here's a close up of the beads. I simply used MONO Aqua Liquid Adhesive to trace the bare heart wood accent I picked up at Micheals for $1.00 and sprinkled the micro beads all over and they shook off the excess. This glue dries super fast and the result is beautiful! I also used Grafix pink and black vellum to layer behind the heart accent and MONO Permanent Adhesive. It works great on vellum and card stock. Oh and isn't that brad I made in the center of the flower to finish the sketch fab! I made it with my Itop tool! You must get one of these, seriously!



And this pic is just to show off my Nikon 55-200mm 1:4-5.6G lens


I have a feeling this photography thing is gonna suit me just fine...Thanks for stopping by!
