  • Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Paint: Picket Fence, Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard See, Mowed Lawn, Broken China
  • Ranger Wendy Vecchi Archival Ink: Rose Madder, Tea Rose, Buttercup, Leaf Green, Sky Blue, Tree Branch
  • Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool with Several Foam Pieces
  • Tim Holtz Collection Layering Stencil: Splotches
  • Ranger Glue N Seal
  • Tim Holtz Idea-ology: Letterpress Blocks, Industrious Stickers in Gallery, Carousel Clip
  • Ranger Foil Sheets: Vintage
  • Ranger Collage Glue Stick

Paint the oval portion of the Art Part with Picket Fence. Let Dry.

Lay the Splotches Stencil on top, and ink in the circles with various colors of Archival Ink.

Cover the plaque with Glue N Seal to seal in the color.

Paint over each of the letters using a different Distress Paint. Let dry, and then ink over the edges of the letters with Tree Branch to give a vintage look. Add Glossy Accents over the letters to shine them up.

Add a little bit of glue stick over the circles on the plaque. Lay a gold colored Foil Sheet on top, and use your fingernail or a pointy tool to make spirals. Lift the Foil Sheet up and you should have shiny, foiled spirals.

Paint over two pieces of trim from the sticker sheet with Broken China. Let dry, and adhere these to the plaque on top and bottom in two strips. Trim off the excess. Use a white pen to outline the circles and the trim.

Add a Carousel Clip to the top of the plaque so that you can hang it on a wreath or another object. Ink the edges of the plaque with Tree Branch.

Adhere the Letterpress sentiment on the plaque with Glossy Accents or Glue N Seal.

Tie a bow with the ribbon and glue it onto the plaque. Hang the plaque onto your wreath, and enjoy!
