I didn't want to miss the current challenge at Just Add Ink. The image is the prettiest Easter wreath I've seen and with Stampin' Up's Wreath Builder dies retiring - how could I not play along? Clearly I wasn't just "inspired" - I pretty much duplicated that wreath!!
I cut a rainbow of eggs. Then because I liked the texture of the eggs in the inspiration photo, I used the Tasteful Textiles embossing folder on them. I started with one of the the wreaths from the die set, but I also cut a second wreath and clipped a number of the leaves to fill it in.
I didn't use a pink background but I'm wishing I would have. It added a nice warmth to the wreath in the photo. I did add some woodgrain to the white and at least edged it with some pink cardstock.
The pearls were to add some elegance. They are older Stampin' Up and I've colored them with Copics to match the cardstock they are on.
Thanks to Just Add Ink for the inspiration!!
