This week the challenge is to make a wreath. This is exactly the type of challenge that gets my creativity going, because I have no wreaths from Papertrey Ink. Nada….not one. That meant that I had to think outside the box…………er circle in this case. Tearing through every stamp set I had, I spotted a leaf spray from a Bleeding Heart stamp. It had a touch of a curve to it, so I thought I might be able to coax it into a circle shape. It is from the Make it Market Garden Gate kit. It came together very well, until that terrible moment, when I decided to add some dark brown splatters and black flower centers……………nope didn’t like it and had to start over. All is well, though, as the second time around I used a darker rust colour for the second layer of leaves and it turned out better. There really is something to be said for dress rehearsals. You do figure out what works and what doesn’t.
