Wreath for Christmas

Hi and welcome to another fabulous challenge at Just Add Ink.  This week we have a sketch designed by Narelle and it's a keeper, for sure πŸ˜ƒ

In my vain attempt to get my Christmas cards made in time to post, I've used the sketch to add to the pile.


This is more NBUS and was stamped using various inks to add interest.  What is hard to see in the photo, is that I stamped the single berry several times in silver Delicata ink which gives a lovely shimmer the camera didn't pick up.  I stamped the sentiment across the wreath then the rest of the sentiment was stamped onto a strip of Green Apple cardstock that I run through a Blueprints die and also lightly sponged the edges of.  I did the same with the red layer underneath.  



Thanks for visiting!  The rest of the Design Team have created some gorgeous cards with the sketch so be sure to check them out.

Products used:

Stamps:  Layered Wreath (Clearly Besotted)
Ink: Black Licorice Hybrid (MFT), Green Leaf, Willow, Beanstalk Green, Dark Chocolate, Lipstick Red (SSS), Silver Delicata
Cardstock: White, Green Apple, Lipstick Red
Dies:  Pierced Rectangle Stax, Blueprints 21 (MFT)

Cheers
Karren

I love the green and red strips staggered with the wreath panel in between, so effective. The wreath is so beautifully stamped.

Such a gorgeous wreath, Karren! I love the layers of colour and level of detail they add and the clean and modern look of the die cut panels too. xo

Absolutely GORGEOUS wreath, Karren! I love how you stamped all of the images, especially that you chose Silver Delicata for the single berries! I also love your choice for the sentiment, and how you cleverly placed the red banner behind your focal panel...so elegant!
