SweetStamps #70: MicroBeads

Good morning everyone-
Sorry if I seem a little rushed this morning, but it’s because I am!!  LOL. I had a super long weekend…A really good one too.
So let’s get to today’s post.
Today’s SweetStamps challenge is:
I have a love/hate relationship with these little obnoxious beads!!!  They are so fun to play with and look really great on projects, but man they can be a real drag if they get everywhere!!!  Smile 
Here is my card sample for this week:
Aren’t those Swans beautiful???  This stamp is called Swan Family  by Jacqueline Hill. I colored the image using my new and fabulous Distress Markers!! I love them so MUCH!!!!!! So you will be seeing a lot more watercolor images once I head to the supply store to stock up on on more watercolor paper!!!  YEAH!!  Here a close up of the image, you can see the microbeads a lot better in this shot.
So I hope that you will add a little microbead or sugarbeads to your project this week and join us.
Can’t wait to see what you create with it.
