Beaded Feather

I really enjoyed making beads for the Saturday Workout challenge, although feel they would look better on a hanging or canvas than a card. Something to try another day. Also, looking at the card as a photo, the bird stamp would have been better in a darker colour. If you click on the photo you get a close up.

I made the beads by coiling long triangular coloured strips of paper around a cocktail stick. and then winding metallic thread around that. After covering with versamark, I dipped the bead into Amazing Glaze for a couple of layers.
