Christmas Wreath

Now I don't really like talking about Christmas in October, but I have started to make some Christmas Cards for a charity event I am supporting.  I've also been playing around with a wreath kit (from Craftwork Cards) that I bought at Ally Pally a couple of weeks ago.
I was full of trepidation when I started getting the bits and pieces out of the packet because I have never done anything like this before, but I quickly got into it.
I sprayed the back of all the flowers with some Dylusions ink and Glimmer Mists so that the backs were not glaringly white.  After leaving them to dry, I shaped them all with a pokey tool to add dimension.  Then I layered them together to make seven flowers in total.
Prior to this, I stained the chipboard wreath with red ink and attached the ribbon.  Finally I added the flowers.
The wreath itself is quite small, about 8 inches in diameter, but so sweet.  I can't wait to make some more, I really have the bug now!  Have a look at the photos and see what you think.

The cards I have been making do use Stampin' Up products, particularly the discontinued Serene Snowflakes, which I hope to share with you soon.

Thanks for dropping by, and I appreciate your continuing interest.

Have a good week
