Today was Day 9 of the Online Card Class and the cards by the instructors were oh so beautiful!!
I was feeling somewhat lacking in talent in the watercoloring department! Haha!! But I took my inspiration from Dawn Wolesagle and her oh so beautiful wreath! I was really helped by her tip to use very little water on the brush.
The wreath is from a stamp set by Inkadinkadoo that I picked up on clearance at Michael's for $2.99 (HAD to buy it at that price!) I used all Distress inks in one form or another for the coloring of the stamp. I used the markers, re-inkers, and smooshed some ink from the pads onto my craft sheet. I also blended gold Perfect Pearls with Ground Espresso to use on the frame and pine cones.
I also stamped the sentiment (old stamp set purchased a long time ago) in Frayed Burlap Distress Ink to continue the rustic look I was hoping to achieve.
I really love making cards for Christmas! This class has been perfect for inspiring different ideas!
Thank you so much for taking a look! I also thank you for any comments--hugs to you!
