Monthly Challenge February 2014 *Reveal day*

It is time for the Monthly Challenge 2014. The inspiration for this February challenge is a picture of yummylicious Cupcake below. :-D
I bet no one can resist of this yummy cupcake. And after saw this picture, my daughter asked me to get some cupcake for her Birthday party instead of Birthday Cake LoL.

I decided to used the frosting color on my design red and white. I just loves the combination of those two color and red is also my favorite color.
Here it is my entry for this challenge.

This time, we have to create something in Red, Black and Metallic Gold! and also we can add a twist to include Herringbone stitch in our creation.

Here it is my entry for this challenge at first,but I decided to glaze the pendant and beads to make them more shiny. So which one do you prefer, the necklace without shiny glaze or the necklace with shiny glaze? 

Without any glaze.

I used the second picture for the challenge, eventhough I prefer the one without the glaze :-D.

My entry for The January Challenge "Operation Tackle That Bead Stash"

Every month Operation Tackle That Bead Stash always holding an interesting challenge with interesting gift also. And I have been participating in the challenge for quite some time now. The January challenged was to created something inspired by a famous painting. If you interested about this challenge please visit here.
After searched on the internet, I found this lovely painting by Vincent van Gogh. And this painting suits my interest of making applique on polymer beads.

"Blossoming Almond tree"
Vincent van Gogh

 At first I made this polymer cabochon with flower applique for my focal beads. I decided to use pink instead of white for the flower, after my daughter who always "helping" me insisted that pink is better than white :-D. Well I thought it would work too.
Here it is the beads I made.

After I found my focal beads, I also made some beads to completed this necklace. I made two tube shaped beads and also some round beads in pink and green.
