Place your circle mask, stencil or object, on to the front of your card blank, and draw a very faint circle. This will be your guide to create a wreath, and will be erased at the end.
Ink up the foliage stamp, as shown in this image, in the Onyx Black Versafine.
Stamp it so it goes along the pencil line.
Repeat this step to create a wreath.
You can also stamp sections of the stamp only, to fill in gaps and add more fullness to your wreath.
Ink up the solid, detailed, coordinating stamp, with the Izink Cerise ink pad, spritz with water, and stamp in place on one area of the stamped foliage. NB Do not worry if you cannot line it up exactly, as you will be multi stamping the floral petal element.
Repeat with the Izink Cerise, in several areas around the wreath.
Repeat using the other 2 Izink coloured ink pads, until you are happy with the final effect.
You can also randomly stamp some of the floral petals randomly on the inside, and outside, of the wreath, to add more depth and dimension.
Ink up the sentiment stamp, from Because Of You Stamp Collection, in the Onyx Black Versafine.
Stamp in the centre of your wreath.
Ink up the flock of birds stamp, from Soulful Pencil Sketch Elements Stamp Collection, in the Onyx Black Versafine.
Stamp just above your sentiment.
To finish add some Liquid Pearl drops randomly within, and around, your wreath. You could use adhesive pearls, sequins, or gems, if desired.
