Here is my card using the Seasonal Wreath Stamp Fall & Winter set from Simply Stamp for our Anything Goes Challenge!

Card Directions:
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!

Word Art Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes

Hello Delightful Friends! Time for another Word Art Wednesday challenge! Here is my card:
I've kept it pretty simple with water coloring. I've used a couple of greens and a blue water color and used the wet on wet technique. One of the greens was an olive green from the Karin Brush Marker set I have, just did a little scribbling and added water to blend. The blue paint was from my Koi Creative paint set. After it dried, I added Liquid Pearls in gold for a little bling. The stamp set is from Taylored Expressions called Just Vine Background and I stamped using TE Sweet Basil ink. I printed the Scripture art onto white vellum and attached it to the front of the card so that it would be the focal point of my card. Hope you enjoy it and will join us at Word Art Wednesday for the challenge of Anything Goes (family friendly). Our prize this challenge will be from Trinity Stamps ($40 value) Be sure and head over to WAW and see the details, join the fun by adding your art to have a chance to win! Thanks for visiting!! God bless you and God bless America - please pray for us! Photobucket
