Happy Christmas

Happy Christmas

Hallo Everyone!

Here's a versatile wreath you can keep
from one year to the next or make as
a gift.  Brought to us by

Louise Thomson

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.

Happy Christmas!

Materials used;
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
