Rainbow Heart Wreath
I made this rainbow wreath using a heart stamp from the Essentials by Ellen mini set - It's a Date.
I started by stamping a rainbow of Catherine Pooler inks on the back of the stamp, to get solid hearts.
There are 16 hearts here, but only 8 places in the Gina K Designs Wreath Builder template, so after my first 8 hearts, I moved the stamp in between 2 of the hearts and filled in the wreath with the next 8.
Then I cleaned the back of the stamp, flipped it over and repositioned it on my MISTI door to stamp the outlines with Versafine Onyx ink, a nice crisp black.
My sentiment is from Totally Random Sayings Vol 3 - after a bit of stamp surgery, to make the most of the centre portion of the wreath.
I trimmed the wreath with a circle die and then popped it up over a circle frame of Concord & 9th glitter cardstock (I reserved the centre circle for a future project - no sense leaving it covered by my wreath panel, right?).
