SweetStamps.com Technique Challenge: Microbeads

Welcome to this month's Technique Challenge at SweetStamps.com.  I love these monthly techniques, because most of the time they are techniques I've never tried myself, so talk about a true challenge!  The technique this month is Microbeads, and I had no clue what that was until I surfed a couple of tutorials on how microbeads are used with stamping and the results are stunning!!!  I hope this challenge will have you challenging yourself to try something new if you have never played with microbeads I highly encourage it!  Here is my take on the challenge:

(PS this has a bigger WOW factor in person!)

Supplies Used:




* I am also entering this into the Christmas Cards All Year Round CHallenge: Snow
and into the Christmas Card Challenge Sketch #50 ( Mine is flipped upside down hehehe)
Hope to see your creations, and to see you try something new!  It might just surprise you!
Happy Crafting!

I have to say- this is spectacular! I love the microbeads over the colored image- and the DP you edged the image with is perfect!!! The bow- icing on the 'gingerbread'!!!

This is such a cute set, I'll be using it soon too. Love your use of the microbeads, the candy border and ribbon.
