Wreath - I love this card and would you believe that it is the easiest that I have done this season? It also started out as a mistake. We are sponsored by Fred, She Said and when I went to get my image, I mistakenly got the pre-colored images instead of the regular un-colored images. But what a blessing that mistake became. I was out-of-town last week and my daughter, who is a single mother, who takes in foster children, had 2 sick children for me to watch. Needless to say with all of that plus the business of the season, I would not have had time to color for this challenge. But Fred, She Said bailed me out!
This is 2 images, both pre-colored. The first is the wreath and then Winter Birds. I then just added the birds to where I wanted them on the wreath and printed it out on card stock.
After printing, I inked with Spun Sugar distress inks. Then the fun began, I used my Zutter Distrezz-it-all and distressed the edges. With the Zutter, it is a quick process.
My DP is DCWV Tis the Season pad. I inked and ran it through the distresser also. The stick pin I made using a variety of beads.
The puckered ribbon was achieved by placing a strip of score tape across my papers and randomly sticking the ribbon to it. The bow was tied using my Bow Easy.
That's it for me. I hope you will join our distressed challenge at One Stop Craft Challenge.
