Summer Wheat


I recently found loads of seed beads while sorting through a cupboard in my daughters room and have started to add them to my cards, I love the sparkle they create and they are so easy to attach with Glossy Accents. These gold beads look great added to the Wheat Grass stamp as they look like rippened wheat in the summer sun. Love this effect althought found it very hard to photograph as you can see in the complete images.



It was probably too dark today to get a good image. The butterfly is a prima flower folded in half, I just added some copic coloured pearls.





I haven't added sentiments yet as I am not sure what event I will use these for.
Supplies: Stamp and Digital Butterfly: Hero Arts Papers: BoBunny and Crate Paper.
