(2017 c36) Neat and Tangled, Christmas Wreath


I used Neat and Tangled’s Fractal Cloud  in my Misti Stamping Tool  to stamp in a circle making a WREATH.



I colored with SPARKLY  Color Burst Liquid Metals by Ken Oliver.  The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed. Retired Stamp, actually Retired company: (The stamp is Poinsettia Blooms 2012 from a company that went out of business in late 2016 Mark’s Finest papers a Heinrich Co.)  Then I cut out a mask of the Fractal Cloud and sponged on Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger  Cracked Pistachio and Faded Jeans and then spattered water on and blotted.  The picture on the far right shows a second wreath that I auditioned different Distress Oxide Inks to help me choose which to use for the background.
