Flower Heart Wreath - Part Two!

Well here we are with wreath part two!  You'll see from yesterday's blog I have used a Craftwork Cards Create-a-Wreath Kit.  These fabulous kits contain everything to make two wreaths.  Yesterday's was pretty much as it was on the picture on the box, but today's I decided to add some colour!

I started with exactly the same components as yesterday.  A chipboard base, paper die cut sheet to cover the base, lots of die cut flowers in different sizes and shapes.  The only thing I didn't have was the ribbon as I chose to use the ribbon supplied in the kit all on the first wreath as I knew I wanted to add different ribbons to my second.

So the difference between them.... Distress Ink - Fired Brick.  That's it..  Just the addition of one ink pad to change the look completely!  Start by using your cut n dry foam to ink around all your flowers.  You can change the depth of colour to get some variations.  Once happy with your colours, then follow the instructions again and simply create your flowers and mount onto your heart chipboard base! 

I could also have added sticky gems to the centre of the flowers - or what about some glitter, liquid pearls or mica to add some sparkle and shimmer.  I could also have sprayed my flowers with Cosmic Shimmer Ink Misters... can you imagine a wreath in the colours I used for my peacock card the other day... mmmmm.. an idea there I think I might have to do!!

Go on.. have a play... you know you want to!!
