Good Thursday Morning.
I wanted to play along with the Curtain Call Challenge: Welcome Home
I took the wonderful photo literally and created my impression of this wreath.
such a lovely wreath hanging on a weathered door!
Using the stamp, A Wreath for all Seasons (PTI), I stamped the stick wreath first in Kraft and then in Brown. Then I selectively stamped the sticks only to increase the width of the wreath.
Next embossed the wreath stamp in ivory.
Then I applied red and purple dots to look like the berries in the photo.
I took a piece of natural sponge, and stamped tufts of mossy where I liked them,
in several powders, ivory and greens.
I know it seems like a lot of work, but fun it was!
Kind of artsy?
Next I accented in red and purple stickles.
Matted in Royal Velvet card stock, then in Rustic Cream.
I had this unused silver paper that I ran through a wood grained embossing folder, inked it up a bit,
stamped the Merry in Royal Velvet, and the Christmas in Pine.
Card base is Aqua Mist
Hope you enjoyed my long winded explanation.
Oh yes, the stitching is Lil Inkers square die.
Catch the challenge that runs through Sunday, here:
