I die cut the wreath from watercolor paper & used Altenew watercolor markers. I just dabbed on one color at a time & lightly spritzed. The berries were die cut from a scrap watercolored with the 2 brown markers in my set. I used gold Tansai Gambi watercolors on the scrap from the center of the wreath so I could die cut the additional leaves. The sentiment from Delicate Wreath was stamped in Versafine Clair Acorn & clear embossed on a vellum strip. I used a brown scrap for the mat. The Classic Kraft card & the wreath were splattered with gold paint. Several of the Small Butterflies I gold embossed are still on my table, so I painted one to match the wreath.
I used a small paint brush & a bit of water with the ink from the markers. Decided it needed to be softer, so I brushed on the gold watercolor. Finished off with PFS Espresso Jewels. I'm also entering The Snippets Playground.
As you may know, I love wreaths! I have many stamps & dies, but I also like to make my own. Decided to use my Gina K Wreath Builder template & SSS Peaceful Christmas for a kraft & red card to enter Color Hues challenge, Rudolph Days & SSS Flickr 186.
The sentiment from the set was stamped in Versafine Clair Acorn. I used direct to paper on the edges of the card front & the mat using the red & white inks so everything would match.
I've seen so many beautiful tree cards lately, I pulled out my old IO Fir dies. I colored the trees with Sparkle pens & mounted them to a Lil' Inker quilted panel that had some Distress Oxide speckled egg blended in the center.Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
