Blessed Christmas Wreath

Hello everyone!! A quick post to share a Christmas card that I made recently.

Here's what I made:

I stamped the Hero Arts Color A Wreath with black ink on a piece of white cardstock. I initially thought of using ranger liquid pearls in pink to make pearl accents inside the circles. But when I dropped a big blob on the biggest circle, it didn't maintain a pearl shape but fell flat. So I took a painting brush and used it to paint my bow and another big circle. For the smaller circles, I used it to create pearls. For the grey color, I used Nuvo drop liquid mercury. That on the other hand maintained a perfect pearl shape even in the largest circle. The sentiment is from Verve Stamps Christmas Blessings. I layered the white panel on pink card base.

Here's a closer look at the wreath. The liquid pearls and Nuvo drops both have a beautiful shine.

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave your thoughts and comments.
