Hello crafty friends! And thanks for popping in!
Welcome back for Colour INKspirations Challenge #116. The photo for this challenge was chosen by our lovely Crew member, Cheryl Miller and the Guest Designer for this Challenge is the amazing Bernie Roodt.
I took inspiration from the beautiful bouquets and decided on a wreath design with the help of some watercolouring in the Challenge Colours. A few gems from the Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels and a double bow finishes it off.
- Dies: Pierced Blossoms Dies, Stitched Greenery Die
- Cardstock: Blackberry Bliss (card base), Basic White (topper and inner)
- Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper
- Reinkers: Highland Heather, Blackberry Bliss, Mint Macaron, Smoky Slate
- Embellishments: Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewells, Linen Thread
- Tools: Water Painters, Paper Trimmer, Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
- Adhesive: Tombow Liquid Glue, Mini Dimensionals, Glue Dots
How To Assemble:
Trim two sheets of Fluid 100 Watercolour paper in half and watercolour each piece with the using the Challenge colours. I also added some salt while still wet to add more texture. Once completely dry, remove the salt.
Take the Pierced Bloom Dies and cut a full sheet of Mint Macaron and Smoky Slate leaves and a few flowers in different sizes. At this point I didn't quite know my finished design so I cut a few in both Highland Heather and Blackberry Bliss.
Use the Stitched Greenery Die on one for the card topper.
Arrange the leaves in a circle, alternating Mint Macaron and Smoky Slate. I used ten larger leaf die cuts all together.
Add centres to the large flowers and arrange them on the wreath, placing smaller flowers beside them. Use the smaller leaf die cuts to fill in any gaps.
I had some die cuts left over, so I added them to the inner.
Add some Iridescent Rhinestones to the centres of each flower and add a double bow in the Linen Thread.
