Golden Delight

I decided to let the colorburst paint powders do the colouring for me on this cute little wreath from Penny Black. I embossed the wreath in gold on hot pressed watercolour paper and embossed the sentiment at the same time.

I sprinkled four colours of Ken Oliver’s colorburst powders over the embossing then spritzed with water and watched the colours emerge and spread. I helped them out a little with a paintbrush so paint filled every nook and cranny. Once the panel was dry I die cut the wreath and trimmed the sentiment to the right size then cut a wreath from adhesive backed foam also to pop up the watercoloured one. Before I attached the wreath to the card base I looped some gold embroidery thread back and forth around the wreath letting the adhesive hold it in place.

The woodgrained card base not only has texture it also has a little bronze shimmer to it. I bought it from my local scrapbooking store but you could get the same effect with a woodgrain embossing folder.

Feeling grateful, thankful and blessed to be part of this encouraging and inspiring community.

    The Colorburst powders looks great on this wreath, and with the gold embossing and thread the contrast against the dark bronzy brown background is terrific Heather. A fabulous card. x

    I never would have thought to use the Color Burst in such a small image! I love it! I want a big wreath to hang on my door, now!! The gold embossing and thread set it off beautifully. Thanks Heather!
