Are you singing a Willie Nelson song in your head with this sentiment...? :) It is just a card for the fun of colouring. I have been wanting to create a wreath with the smaller elements of Power Poppy’s gorgeous Azalea set. So, I stamped the smaller clusters of Azaleas in a circular pattern around a 1 3/4 inch circle that I had punched out of low tack masking paper. That way I could stay on track in keeping it circular. After I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black I coloured in the flowers with Prismacolor Pencils for a bit of a change.
After I had coloured all the flowers, then I fussy cut it all out creating a wreath. I looked at how it would appear on the paper with the sentiment I was going to use in the middle. The sentiment seemed a little small for the space, so I got the brilliant idea to do some loopy random sewing to “frame" it up.
To do that I punched a smaller circle, 1 1/2 inches on masking tape, then removed the wreath and sewed all around that circle as my guide.
It’s just a nice way of adding interest without it being too much.
Here’s a closeup of the design and colouring. Extra details are rhinestones, seambinding, a button and baker’s twine.
And the inside of the finished card. The Designer papers are Basic Gray Picadilly. And the inside is stamped in Memento Canteloupe and Rosebud. Finished card is 5 x 5 inches.
I like how cheerful and vibrant it is! It really is a most stunning stamp set.
