Wondrous Wreath with more WOW!

Amanda Bates, The Craft Spa, North Yorkshire 040

Before I got my Wondrous Wreath set… one of my ladies commented that the wreaths appeared “flat”on the samples she had seen on the web… so I set to to give my wreaths a bit more life….

The process started off with the berries or just a few leaves being randomly glossed up using Crystal Effects as per these cards shared earlier in the week…

But then I went the whole hog…  so this card has every leaf glossed up… and boy does it shine and pop off the card! Definitely not flat! You just need a bit of patience – but it does makes great therapy!

In fact I didn’t stop there… even some of the flowers are “glossed up” too….

    1. Thank you for popping by Zoe... Good question... but I didn't need to do anything... it just didn't bleed... either on the berries or the leaves... apart from very slightly around one leaf where I "splodged" over the edge with my Crystal Effects! So guess it is a case of less is more...
