Glad Tidings
by Donna Sledzik

Hello everyone and welcome to day two of our Holiday Blog Blitz!

I love the new stamp sets in this release!  I decided to use the "Tidings Wreath" stamp set today and loosely watercolor my stamped image.

I stamped the wreath image onto watercolor paper and used Distress Inks to color the image.

I painted the leaves first and let them dry completely before painting the berries.  If the leaves were still wet the green and red paint could bleed into each other.

Once my paint was dry, I added some shading with colored pencils to help define the leaves and berries.  I also spattered the card front with green distress ink. 

Using foam tape I adhered my painted card front to a white card.  

I stamped and white heat embossed my sentiment on a strip of black cardstock and glued this to my card.

That's all for today's card! It's a fairly quick card to make!

Hi Donna, I just wanted to thank you since I was one of the lucky winners.... I was to get this Lovely wreath as my gift... How lucky.
I did reply for my address to Laura Fulcher but have not received a reply from her that she received my info... Is there some way you could check for me.
Thanks,
