Entwined Spring Wreath

These new entwined floral wreath stamps from Claritystamp, designed by Barbara Gray, are beautiful.  They work so well with the floral alphabet and number stamps, but also by themselves.
Stamp Barbara’s entwined ‘Spring’ wreath into the centre of a piece of 7” x 7” Clarity stencil card in Versamark ink and heat emboss in detail gold powder.
Use the direct cut function on an electronic cutting machine to cut out the wreath with a slight border around the outside edge.
Stamp ‘Spring' and the larger butterfly from the same stamp set into the centre of the wreath in the same manner as before.
Add the leaf flourish into two opposite corners of the front of a 6” x 6” kraft card blank in Versamark ink, heat embossing with detail white embossing powder.
Add a second flourish into the other two corners in the same manner.
Colour the flowers, leaves and butterfly in water colour pencils, blended out with a water brush.
Colour the flourishes on the front of the card to match.
Using Clarity stencil brushes, add Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed Oxides to the centre of the card front. Brush out from the centre with the Spiced Marmalade and make a circular motion around the edge of the colour with the Mustard Seed Oxide.
To finish, add the wreath to the card front with foam pads for added dimension.
