A Christmas Wreath!!


I love this beautiful holiday wreath stamp by Pink Cat Studio! This one I picked up unmounted individually at my local scrapbook store a couple of weeks ago and thought I would play with it yesterday (in between working on baby shower invites).

The sketch challenge (#143) that was posted on SCS yesterday was a perfect one to use with this image. So I pulled out some Dasher dp by Basic Grey and used the plaid design along with the dark red one. I stamped the image on shimmery white cardstock in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink (love that stuff)! And then I coloured in my image with my SU markers. You'll notice that I went back in an shaded some of the leaves darker to give the image a little more depth. Then I sponged all around the edge of the main image with River Rock ink and the patterned pieces I sponged with Walnut Stain distress ink by Ranger. I made little criss crosses on the two sides using my 1/16th hole punch and some linen thread. For a finishing touch I added some sparkle in the middle of the wreaths with my Stardust Sakura gel pen!!

Today is another yucky, rainy day in St. Thomas so I'm hoping to get a lot of stamping done!! Don't forget to enter your baby cards in this week's Kimmie's Challenge!!! There have been some super cute ones so far!!!

this is a really pretty stamp and you used it beautifully. I like the patterns in the paper...they echo the pattern of the wreath.
