Foliage Fancy (Mini Wreath)

No need to wait for fall to start collecting autumn leaves!  You can create your own colorful array with Penny Black’s new Foliage Fancy.

To create this miniature wreath (4 ¾ round), I repeatedly stamped the maple leaf in VersaMark Watermark ink on white cardstock and heat embossed with gold powder.  The leaves were water colored using ink from Memento markers placed on a plastic palette and transferred with a paintbrush.

TIP/HINT:  For added glimmer, the leaves were painted with a thin coat of Gold Psst Sheer Shimmer Spritz.

After trimming the leaves, they were assembled on top of ring base made from circular die cuts.

The sentiment was stamped on a Spellbinders Label Eighteen and edged with Peanut Brittle and Olive Grove Memento inks.

Have a happy, colorful day!
