City Crafter Week 240

Good Morning ...

This week at City Crafter we have the lovely Stella hosting the challenge and the them is 
A Wreath For This Season


Stella is asking that we create a card or project that includes a wreath and a touch of silver. The silver can be in in the form of sequins, tinsel, embossing ... anything as long as there is silver on your project 

I don't have a wreath stamp so I improvised using a normal straight stamp and a circle cut from CS ... I lay the circle down with temporary adhesive and I just kept aligning my stamp to the outer edge of the circle to make a wreath 


As you can see I used Liquid Pearls as my "Silver" and also some silver stars


The BG for my wreath was done by inking up a large holly BG stamp in a few different inks then spritzing with water


Our GD this week is Kama ... winner of week 235 ... Please hop over to her Blog and be inspired by  her beautiful creations!

Don't forget to hop over to the City Crafter Blog too and see what Kama and our team have come up with this week to inspire you 
I hope you'll play along with our challenge 

For the first time since City Crafter Challenge started - almost 5 years ago, we will be taking a 2 week break for Christmas so there are only 2 more challenges after this one

Have a lovely day ... Be safe

Geesh Ros this is a jaw dropper. The idea of using a stamp _ not a wreaht stamp - to create a wreath is just briliant. Love your use Liquid Pearls. It adds a erfect sparkle and touch of elegance.
You should frame this gem; it's priceless!
