Hello. I have had time to play in my craft room today, and created this card:
Taking the colour scheme from the current Color Throwdown Challenge, I started with a black 7 inch square card base. Onto that I layered a slightly smaller dove grey card from Concord & 9th which I had dry embossed with a wood grain embossing folder, and slightly ink blended with Distress Ink.
The wreath was die cut twice, and I cut one of them to add more layers to the part that was showing.
The poinsettias were die cut from a cream textured card stock I had and the edges were inked with some Pumice Stone Distress Ink – but then I added some Weathered Wood as I didn’t think it was grey enough. The extra darker leaves were die cut from the same cream card stock, but ink blended before I die cut with the same grey Distress Inks.
I stuck the wreath down with glue – leaving some of the twiggy bits unstuck for dimension and movement, and the poinsettias and leaves were stuck down with 3D glue – I like to use that for the more dimensional elements when I’m adding more – like the extra leaves – so I have some time to play around with the layout.
I then added some stickles to the centre of the flowers.
