Autumn Wreath Watercoloring
Happy Wednesday, all! I hope you’re ready for another autumn wreath (see my first one here, and second one here). Wow, I’ve done a lot with wreaths recently, right? LOL! I can’t help it! Wreaths are gorgeous and so fun to work with on cards. :) For today’s wreath card, I’m using Pretty Pink Posh’s Autumn Wreath stamp set and watercolors.
(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).
When I started this card, I wanted it to be essentially a one layer card with everything done on watercolor paper. So I stamped and embossed the wreath image from the Autumn Wreath stamp set, and then added a greeting from the Simply Sayings: Kind stamp set. I watercolored over the wreath using Mijello Mission Gold watercolors, and soon realized that I didn’t like the greeting inside the wreath because it was just a bit too large.
To save the card (because I really was loving how the watercoloring turned out), I decided to die cut the wreath and adhere it to a kraft colored card instead. Then I used the smaller “Autumn Greetings” stamp from the stamp set inside the wreath.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed the card and video. :)
