Let Us Give Thanks

It's time for our monthly Designer's Choice Challenge over on The House That Stamps Built. This month it was Joy's turn to pick and she chose: "Circles."

I decided to do a little watercoloring with distress inks, and I'm loving the way this wreath looks dressed in warm autumn hues!
  • First I printed one of the wood backgrounds (from Graciellie's new Rustic Wood Digital Paper Pack) on watercolor paper. 
  • Next I stamped my wreath in versamark watermark ink and embossed it in brown embossing powder.
  • Then I stamped my ink pads on my clear acrylic block, added a bit of water, and painted each flower and leaf
  • Last of all I added a few spatters here and there

Very pretty - love how you made this a fall wreath - I have made it using bright colors. All the colors just seem to go together perfectly.

What pretty flowers and I like the distressed edges. I keep forgetting to use that technique.
