Frosty wreath

I have a frosty little wreath to share today which seems appropriate now it’s all frosty outside. I created my background on hot pressed watercolour paper by sprinkling ultramarine brusho over the paper then spritzing it with my homemade pearl-ex spray. The result is a shimmery pattern of blue, turquoise and purple made with paint powder from just one container.

I applied stick it adhesive to the back of neenah solar white cardstock then die-cut three wreaths using Penny Black’s ‘wreath & bow’ die. I stacked them on top of each other which was surprisingly easy even though they were quite delicate. I use a pair of tweezers to squeeze each section of the die-cuts into alignment with the ones above and below.

I stamped a sentiment from festive snippets on purple cardstock, embossed it in white and attached it overlapping the wreath then matted the painted panel in purple also. To finish it off I attached some silver cord and a little die-cut snowflake on top of the sentiment strip. You can find all the supplies listed below; I am experimenting with the appearance of my supply list; word has it that people like to see the product not just the name. Let me know if the pictures and links are helpful.

    The white wreath contrasts beautifully with the gorgeous blue Brusho background Heather, and I love the fishtail sentiment banner and background mat in that purple which is perfect with it. x

    I like the simplicity of this card Heather. Thank you for sharing about stacking three layers of die cut for depth. I personally do not need to see the materials you have used, just the usual list is fine with me. If there is something out of the ordinary that you have used and listed I can always look it up. That way I can often see other items that I just have to have. 🙂
