Colour challenge 13 on 52cct is to use purple, metallic silver and white - I had been playing with micro beads, and come to the conclusion that they needed a frame, so this fitted in quite well - and I even found some purple card................
The snowflake was the first effort, from the SU snowflake soiree set, stamped on acetate with white craft ink, then the micro beads added to the back using double-sided adhesive sheet after diecutting the shape suing Sizzix/SU framelits (I discovered that you can cut with scissors after using the beads, but wouldn't like to risk the dies). I cut a frame out using 2 dies from silver mirri card and glued them together before mounting onto the 5.5" square card base.
The second effort was more succesful, stamping the bauble stamp from the ornament keepsakes set (more SU) in versamark and embossing with white EP before using the micro beads on the back. I used a different framelits set for this one.
am also using this for craftyhazelnuts challenge - anything goes - another that i haven't entered for ages
