Laura here with my third project for May. I’ve used the Wildflower Wreath to make a thank you card…
I cut the wreath on white card stock just shy of 4” wide. I used some Dylusions ink sprays to add colour to the different sections of the wreath. The leaves are Mushy Peas, the flowers Periwinkle Blue and Laidback Lilac with Vanilla Custard in the centres, all added slightly diluted with water and applied with a paintbrush. I also painted some scrap paper with the Vanilla Custard ink and used it to back the open areas in the middle of the blue flowers.
On a lime card base I added a large loop of cotton to sit behind the wreath. I love the subtle texture that the cotton adds. I could have left it there but decided to add a sentiment. I needed a thank you card so I looked through my Skull And Cross Buns clear stamps for the right stamp. I didn’t want to add black to the card as I thought it would be too harsh. I used a grey ink which had just the right amount of saturation for me.
And you know me by now, I finished up with a sprinkle of sequins. These ones are confetti dots so don’t have a hole in the middle. I rather like these as they are easier to stick down – no glue oozes through the hole!

See you again next month
