Pretty Fall Cotton Wreath

This is my post on the SNS blog today.

Hi Diane with you today using a beyond gorgeous digital
I fell in love with this as soon as I saw it
as I had just purchased a real cotton wreath for my fireplace,
though this one is MUCH prettier!

This digital set has many more options 
and also comes in black and white so you can color it yourself if you choose!
I chose the already colored one as it was so beautiful.

Supplies Used:
Misc.:  Sue Wilson Backgrounds Swirly Vine die

I printed out my Fall Cotton Wreath digi (in microsoft word)
then quickly fussy cut it out, only took minutes.

I set it aside , then die cut a pretty Sue Wilson die that I adhered to
Sticker paper and started applying Golden Wheat Glitter.

I pretty much just dumped it on and used my 'finger' tool
to rub it in, then brushing off the excess with my Glitter Brush.

Next came the fun part, 'dressing up' the digi.
I used a Stardust Gelly Roll Pen on the little white sprays of flowers 
and on random places on the wreath.

I also added lots of gold sparkle to the bow by adding 
Nuvo  Aqua Shimmer Midas Touch (gold).

Can you see how real the 'cotton' looks?
That's because I first carefully added Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive
to each little cotton ball, then using craft tweezers
I sprinkled with SNS Twinkling Clouds Flocking.

I hope you have enjoyed my small tutorial of how this card was created!

Thank you for visiting with me today!!

This is so beautiful, Diane! The fluff on the cotton and gold on the bow -- gorgeous! I may not be able to resist this digi. Probably wouldn't get it colored this year, but would love to add it to my collection. Wow!
