Vintage Wreath

Hey Friends! Today, I am playing around with a Woodware UK stamp set from White Rose Crafts today and some watercolor pencils to create a little vintage feel Christmas card.

I started by stamping out the Woodware Holly Wreath stamp set onto some watercolor paper using some water resistant black ink.

I picked a simple color palette from my spectrum AquaBlend watercolor pencils to help give me that vintage color. I colored just the areas I wanted the heaviest shadow, then using a water-brush, pulled the color across the image.

The berries needed more color, so I added a second layer of color to them.

The card needed more color, so I colored in the corners and added a highlight of red to the center of the wreath.

Here is the final look of the coloring.

I added Dovecraft Glitter Glue to the berries.

I added Autumn Red Nuvo Crystal Drops to the berries on the corners.

I love how this super simple card turned out. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting.
