This was my first attempt at a bead collage card.

This was my first attempt at a bead collage card.

I basically pencil-drew the fish in outline, then back-painted each section so that white card wouldn’t show through inbetween the beads.  Then painstakingly (and it did hurt, until I had the bright idea of putting the card on top of a biscuit tin, which meant I didn’t have to bend over it so far!) stuck each bead, finishing off with the trailing fins and weed, made from wool yarn and the sand, made from multicoloured glitter.  Unfortunately, what didn’t show up in the scan, is that the whole thing is on pearlised card.
