Black Sesame Seeds Add Texture to Berry Sweet Fairy LTC

The base of this little Berry Fairy was quickly assembled with two card stock backgrounds, the addition of paper tape, stamping and coloring the Berry Fairy with Copic markers and a button tossed on for warmth.  The real time spent on the card was adding each of the black sesame seeds to her hat and dress and then sealing them in place with Glossy Accents  (a clear dimensional embellishment).  I am a bit of a nut about making sure my embellishments stay put.  Even with the glue I knew with handling or mailing that the sesame seeds risked coming loose.  The Glossy Accents will ensure that they do not move or budge.  It is often less expensive to get sesame seeds and spices at Asian markets than in the spice section of your local market.  These seeds were very cheap and I now have enough to craft and cook with for years.
