30 Day Coloring Challenge 3 - Day 27

Hello Friends! Day 27! I didn't plan to color any Christmas images during this challenge. But on Day Five, I colored a Santa for a Power Poppy challenge. After that I told myself, that's it, no more Christmas, let's concentrate on Fall. But then I received my Power Poppy order. -BIG SMILE- And it was from the Holiday release. Soooo...I couldn't resist.

I purchased Wreaths Plain and Fancy. When I saw it during sneak peek week, I knew I had to have it. Wreaths are one of my favorite motifs to use on Christmas cards and the wreaths in this set are GORGEOUS! I had to stamp them all out for you, because I didn't want you to miss the beauty and unique-ness of this set.

The set features two beautiful wreaths, three holiday motifs and six word art stamps. All very lovely on their own, but take a look at what can be done with them...

The sweet little motifs fit INSIDE the wreaths! Isn't that cute?! I adore the large wreath with the candle, church and deer tucked inside. It looks pretty with the word JOY, too. The small wreath is the perfect frame for PEACE. I'm looking forward to creating cards with this set very soon. But this is what I did for now...

I embossed the wreath in gold and watercolored it using a combination of Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens and Distress Markers. Then, I added red Stickles on the berries. Nice and simple.

I encourage you to visit the Power Poppy site to see all of the beautiful samples the Design Team shared using this set. Truly inspiring!

Well, that is it for me today. Thank you so much for stopping by. I appreciate the visit!

Sigh! I haven't purchased anything from the new Release Barb! I can't believe it myself. Her images are just gorgeous to color up for someone special! I've always loved wreaths too! We're just two peas in a pod you and me! By the way, I do need your Address as well!

Oh, Barb, this is one fabulous set, and what versatility. I just LOVE your embossed wreath with the watercoloring. It's gorgeous, and thanks for sharing two different photos. I love the shine! Can't wait to see the whole card! Hugs!
