Here's a versatile wreath you can keep
from one year to the next or make as
a gift. Brought to us by
Well it really isn’t long until Christmas will be upon us
and so I wanted to share a project that
could be used as a card or a decoration.
Start by smooshing a selection of distress inks
across a non -stick craft mat.
I used ripe persimmon, fired brick and seedless preserves.
Spritz this all over with water.
Press a sheet of white 12”x12”paper in to the ink
and repeat a few times as desired to get a
good coverage and colour on your paper.
Use the tattered florals die to cut as many flowers
from your sheet as possible.
With a bit of jiggery pokery you should be able to get quite a few!
Spritz the flowers with colour bloom to give them a lovely gold shimmer.
Use alchemy wax applied with your finger to add more gold highlights.
Place each floral component in the palm of your hand
and run the back of your thumbnail along each petal
to give them a slight curve.
Layer them together in twos or threes,
fixing them with 3D foam mount pads
Arrange the flowers in to a wreath and stick down.
Coat a piece of white card in antique linen distress ink
and add highlights using tattered rose.
Run the card through a die cutting machine
with a woodgrain effect embossing folder
then add a layer of ground espresso ink
to highlight the texture.
On a rectangle of white card, stamp and emboss
a Chirstmas greeting using gold embossing powder.
Ink up with more antique linen distress ink
then stamp the vine around the edge in
antique linen to give subtle detailing.
Layer the components together and finish
with a dot of gold stickles glitter in the centre of each flower.
Distress inks– ripe persimmon, fired brick, seedless preserves
A lovely wreath Louise and the flowers
and sentiment would also make a lovely card.
Thank you very much
That's me off to make my wreath
See you all tomorrow
