Playing with a Sweet Poppy Stencil and micro beads

Hi Everyone and a big welcome to my new follwer. 

I had a lovely day yesterday with my best mate Eileen and her fantastic blog can be seen here.  Eileen was showing me how to get the best out of the stencils I bought from Sweet Poppy when we went to Ally Pally so here is the first one I made using distress inks to colour, paste and micro beads:
If you click on it you will be able to see the beads - what a great technique!  As usual the photo does not really do it justice as the colours are much more vibrant.

Thank you for looking and for all your lovely commens.  Have a good week.  Kx
