Color Inspiration # 21 and SKITTLES BEADS








Here is my card for the KWernerDesign Blog Color Inspiration Challenge! I have recently been experimenting with stamping on acetate using StazOn ink and coloring it with permanent markers. It is really fun!! I used skittle beads for the background.











My friend Bonnie surprised me last week at work with a really cool new find. She calls these 'skittles'....they are like beads, but they don't have a hole in the center.




They are the perfect accent for cards and she brought me a whole stash...all sorts of beautiful colors!! These little beads are cheap and super versatile. You could buy a pack of clear and use permanent markers to change them to any color you need for a project....(metallic markers look cool too!) Check out these bugs created with the 'skittle' beads!
