Pocket Silhouettes Wreath


Red and Orange Huh?  I can honestly say Orange is not really my colour and I have the proof.  When looking at the latest challenge from LESS IS MORE which is to use red and orange, I realised that I only have one orange in my ink collection but 3 reds.  I know that these two colours can produce stunning cards.  Check out the fantastic entries over at Less is More to see what I mean, but it's not a combo I would normally use.  I think I need to rectify this.

So onto my card.  I've made an autumnal wreath with my Real Red and Pumpkin Pie combo and i rather like it.  The wreath was created by punching out a circle and using it as a mask.  I then stamped Pocket Silhouettes round the circle, using another post it to mask off the ends of the flowers.  I first stamped the flower in Real Red then rolled the ends in Pumpkin Pie.  The little leaf is from Vintage Vogue and this was also stamped in Real Red and rolled in Pumpkin Pie.

There are four lovely flower/grasses stamps in the Pocket Silhouettes set.  I wonder what they would look like?    Must try another day.

My card stock is Very Vanilla to keep the warm feel and it's mounted onto Real Red.  My sentiment is from Season of Joy and stamped in Real Red.

I dressed up my wreath with little berries.  Did you spot them?  They are the smallest of the Basic Rhinestones and I coloured them red with a permanent marker.  I think my marker was running out so they are not overly red but luckily match the stamped image beautifully.


Here's a close up of the sparkle.

I'm off for my walk in the frosty sunshine.  Have a good day. x
