Hi all. I have made another card using the stamps from Creative Stamping Magazine issue 101. There are so many pretty leaves and flowers and these were different stamps to my last circular design as these were all open shapes which I have coloured using some ancient Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust Pens with a waterbrush for a lovely sparkly finish and I also used some dimensional pearl drops on the red and white berries.
I started by stamping the large flower and leaf branch and then added another smaller mistletoe branch and finished the wreath with a partial circle edge stamp to join it up, all stamped with Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink and then I coloured with my Sakura Pens and water to spread the colour and soften the effect whilst giving the whole thing some wonderful shimmer, unfortunately not visible here. I didn't know until recently that you could use water with these pens but it worked a treat. I finished by cutting it into a square to comfortably fit on a 6" square card and matted it on to gold mirri card. I then added some 3D pearl drops in red and white opal to the different berries, and added a sentiment to the centre of the wreath using WOW Metallic Gold Embossing Powder.
Thank you for coming to visit today and I'll see you again soon.
