#903 – Colorful Fall Leaves Wreath

Hello and welcome! Time for a new challenge at the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge blog, and we are continuing with the Thank You/Fall theme. This time, the board was created by Felicita –

I chose the mid column – Wreath, Any Color, Any Shape Die. And here’s what I made –

Colorful Fall Leaves Wreath

I made a wreath using leaves colored in fall colors, embedding a few die cut, uncolored leaves in between. The stamped leaves are all from two stamp sets from Winnie & Walter – In Bloom: Addie’s Garden and In Bloom: Anna’s Flora. I stamped them in VersaFine Onyx black ink, then water colored them loosely using distress inks. Some of the images hadn’t been stamped well, so I went over them with my Uniball fineliner pens. I then fussy cut them all and set them aside. I also die cut some leaves from Marianne Designs Anja’s Leaves dies, but I didn’t color these.

On a white card base, I used a make up brush to create a ombre or orange-white. I then adhered the base of the leaves in a circular pattern. But since my wreath isn’t centered, a portion of the wreath is missing in the card. 🙂

Once I adhered everything in place, finally came the sentiment. I used two stamp sets – Honey Bee Stamp’s Hand Lettered Alpha to stamp the ‘Fall’ and Ellen Hutson’s Totally Random Sayings Vol 1 to stamp the ‘everything’. I fussy cut them both and adhered them to the card.

And that’s my card. I”m joining the following challenges with this –
