Sunday 17th October ~FREEBIE~

Hello Bloggers!

It's been a while since I've given a freebie... but here is one for you today.
I needed a twiggy wreath for a card so decided to give it away, a bit cheeky really as I am sure that you could just as easily draw this for yourselves Lol... nevertheless, here it is....

I know it doesn't look that much, but once it is decorated it can look really pretty or Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving or many more occasions with flowers etc. I have saved this as a coloured image so that you can colourise it if you wish.
Here's a card I have made using it..
I have used Tim Holtz distress inks for the wreath background splashed with water and blotted with a tissue to give the distress/snowy look. I added lots of tiny sequins and little pearls (done with a pearl pen). I was shown how to do the ribbon weaving on Friday at the craft club I go to... I am now addicted Lol... the snowflakes are from the Martha Stewart punch... and the backing paper on the bottom is from Papermania.. The Sentiment is one of my own - foiled.

Have fun with this..

In answer to how to make the ribbon weaving.. as I said I was only shown last week and I love it.. you can weave 2 colours for a different look and with and width ribbon.. I am new, so I will be playing Lol... .... anyway, I have looked on the web and have found this fabulous video tutorial on you tube...

Have fun!!
