Frosty Flowers and Butterflies Wreath
Stamps (Hero Arts) – Large Flower, Antique Engravings.
The idea for this wreath popped into my mind because of all the snowy\frosty weather we’ve had recently and Barb’s challenge to make a Christmas project using non traditional flowers. For Barb’s 90 minute challenge I used my all time favourite stamp, Large Flower by Hero Arts. Here is the card I made for that 90 minute scramble. I’ve used it again on this project as well as my second favourite stamp set from Hero Arts this year - Antique Engravings. It’s one of those stamp sets I reach for again and again.
To start with I cut a ring shape out of a cereal box and covered it with strips of white lining fabric. The flowers and butterflies were white embossed on vellum and I added some diamond stickles to them. I added blue glitter to red foil snowflakes and then added blue gems to the butterflies.
I'm submitting the wreath into these challenges -
Hero Arts Challenge - part of this month's challenge is to add shine to a project.
Moxie Fab World - Glitter is Glam Challenge.
Allsorts - Anything Goes
Top Tip Challenges - Christmas Inspired Challenge
Scrappy Frogs Challenge - Holiday Decor
This year is the first time I’ve ever seen our local canal freeze over and there is supposed to be more cold weather and snow on the way. It looks like we might have a white Christmas after all!
