An Abundance of Flowers and your last chance to win a Create a Wreath Kit!

Hello and welcome back to my blog for your final stop of the Craftwork Cards blog hop! By now, you will have seen so many wonderful ideas of what you can do with these Create a Wreath kits and I hope that these final two projects will inspire you even further. As always, I hope you love what I've created...

For my first project, I used the Bohemian Create a Wreath kit and I made a canvas. 
I painted the canvas with Tim Holtz Distress Paints, adding some texture paste through a stencil.
I then created nine various sized flowers, using the die cuts from the Bohemian kit and I adhered the flowers onto my painted canvas.

As a finishing touch, I placed the canvas on some small cotton spool feet, again painted with Distress Paints. 

For my final project, I made up a wreath using the Bohemian kit.  
I covered the chipboard ring with the die cut paper provided in the kit and then I added my dimensional flowers but for this project, I didn't want to create a circle of flowers, I wanted to show the beautiful papers that cover the chipboard ring and to give a different overall effect.

Some of the flowers in detail.
So, I really hope you've had fun on this blog hop and that you've been inspired over the last week, by all the makes from the team here in the UK and in the USA!!
