Combined Challenge Creativity
I combined 4 challenges today. All the ideas just came together and I invented this fun wreath and bow all on my own!
I started by punching pieces of always artichoke cardstock with my boho blossoms and my blossom bouquet triple layer punch. I embossed the pieces and glued them on a circle to make a wreath shape. I added some buttons (TLC354 - button art!)
For the ribbon and twine I wrapped the twine in about 4 loops, then looped one piece of the ribbon around it and glued it together. (CAS147 - ways to use twine!)
Also notice how I used the sentiment! I only inked the "Merry" with artichoke, then I cleaned the stamp and inked the "Christmas" with cherry and used the stamp-a-ma-jig to place it. This makes stamps a lot more versatile when you can use parts of the stamp or reposition parts of the stamp!
The layout is from Sketch Frenzy Friday - SFF120211.
The colors are from Pals Paper Arts - PPA122 - cherry cobbler, always artichoke, very vanilla.
