Hi all! Its the 1st of March already and its time for another challenge over at the Merry Little Christmas challenge blog. At this rate, it’ll be Christmas before you know it and you’ll be glad you started making your Christmas cards early! We’re an “Anything Goes” challenge which means you can make anything Christmas themed and share it with us.This month I decided to make a wreath with diecuts from Crafters Companion Fireplace accessories pack and the sentiment from Crafters Companion Merry Christmas sentiment stamp pack which has loads of great Christmas greetings!I coloured my diecut pieces of wreath with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers before assembling them into a wreath onto my card, which was embossed with Darius snowflake embossing folder beforehand. I didn’t have any little pearls to put onto my wreath so I used Nuvo crystal drops to create them and once they hardened, I coloured them using my red Illustrator alcohol marker! To add the shine it lost after I coloured it, I used my Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen and brushed over it to restore its shine!In this close up, you can also see that I shaded the edges of the circle with my red alcohol marker to add some interest. The sentiment was stamped with black Versamark ink. The bow was created from a set of ribbons I bought from a dollar store and I thought it matched my wreath colours very well!Well, I hope I’ve inspired you to create something for our Christmas challenge. I look forward to seeing your wonderful creations! Do pop over to my teammates blogs to give them some love too.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day doing something you love!
