I started with one of my favorite 6.5 x 9" Michaels wood boards as the foundation for my piece. I used the 8 x 8" seasonal pack and Multi Medium to cover the board. I sanded and inked the edges, then set it aside while I created the other pieces for the board.
I wanted silver bows though, so I adhered a Foil Tape Sheet to a thin piece of cardstock and ran it through the Vagabond. Colored with a little Mushroom Alcohol Ink, they are now perfectly vintage.
I also cut the Pediment die from Grungeboard. I painted it with Distress Paint - Black soot, sanded and distressed the finish, then inked it with Gathered Twigs.
1. I cut the Festive Gent from Grungeboard and painted it black soot.
2. I cut away the shape of the bow (that is part of the wreath die) so I could add the small red bow from the Holly die.
3. Paint the wreath portion with Peeled Paint Distress Paint, let dry. Once dry, add Glossy Accents (in a thin layer) and add the Peeled Paint Distress Glitter.
4. Add the Glossy Accented red bow to the wreath.
now carry on,
