Here is my card using the Seasonal Wreath Stamp Fall & Winter set from Simply Stamp for our Anything Goes Challenge!
First, I stamped my wreath, then stamped the Christmas swag using brown ink. (the set comes with an autumn swag, too) I used the Karin Brush Markers to color the poinsettia, leaves and ribbon.
I then used my Koi watercolors to create the background (wet on wet technique). After it dried, I used the gold Liquid Pearls to embellish the wreath berries. The Scripture Art was printed on vellum and added to the lower half of the watercolor paper. The gold striped paper was cut 5.5 x 1" and added to the white card base then I added the focal front panel. The "Blessings" sentiment is also from the Seasonal Wreath set and was stamped with black ink on white paper and matted on to green cardstock.
Don't forget to leave a comment to win!
There will be two winners on January 5!
Thanks for visiting!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
