I’ve made a mini wreath decoration featuring the totally tweet Christmas Robin by Just Some Lines .This little fella,a fabulous freebie,has been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers.I started with a ring of red card made using two Nestabilities Circles dies,in the same way as making a frame.A piece of cord was stapled to the back of this.I die cut two different types of snowflakes and painted one set completely with Distress Crackle Paint and just dabbing it onto the ends of the other so the kraft card shows.I punched some flowers from some Christmas papers,spritzed them,then crumpled them up.They were layered up,added to wreath then topped with buttons.A couple of jingle bells were tied to the hanger using the same cord.I fussy cut the Robin then nestled him amongst the flowers and after cutting the sentiment into a banner style the card was curved before being glued into place.This was such a lovely project to make and apart form waiting for the paint to dry (keep reminding myself that patience is a virtue!) it came together quite easily 🙂
