Autumn Wreath

Vickie Y sharing the colors of autumn with you today.

For my card, I first used Fire Brick Distress Ink to create a watercolor wash on Bristol Multi-Media cardstock.  After drying the wash I used a Brick embossing folder to create the texture for the background of my wreath card. 

(A list of dies used can be found below.)  I die cut the wreath from a woodgrain designer paper but omitted die cutting the sentiment, yet left the bird intact to give the leaves some stability as shown on the backside of the wreath below.

The wreath was attached to the brick using strips of dimensional tape and then embellished using leaves and a flower (see finished card for placement).  To complete the card front I created a double gingham bow embellished with a pearl.  I used Prima Sparkle Acrylic paint to give the leaves and flower some shine.  The completed brick panel was adhered to a deep purple card base.

Dies used from the DRU Online Store:

Penny Black Pop Out Rose (used only the leaves from this die set)
