The Greetery - Bountiful Wreath

Hi everyone!
I've been inking up the beautiful Bountiful Wreath set designed by Betsy Veldman and available in her new store, The Greetery. The gorgeous designs for summer and fall have really kicked my mojo into gear! 

I love wheat for fall! The variety of wheat and greens, mushrooms and berries suggest a wholesome goodness. Inking the wreath in layers was made much easier by the wonderful acetate template that Betsy is now providing with her layered sets. I added details and some shading to the stamped images with my colored pencils. 

The wreath is die cut and raised. For the area inside the wreath I used the Knit Wits stencil (The Greetery) with Distress Oxide inks. The sentiment is stamped in brown.

For sparkle and shine, I used clear drops from Nuvo on the berries although they took on the light red shade of the ink. I cannot get enough of the Nuvo Crystal Gems. I want to add them to everything. On the closeup the lower two gems give you an idea of how they shine, it's almost like rainbow colors!

I had created this wreath previously, but decided it fits in very well to the challenge this week at Color Throwdown. I added the Garden Green panel and a yellow ribbon.

Thanks so much for visiting today. I hope your day is filled with goodness!
