Lots of Wreaths....

Hello! I have several cards with wreaths for your viewing pleasure today.  All of them a bit different.  The above card uses the wreath and a sentiment from The Stamps Of Life set, Wreath4me.  I stamped the wreath and sentiment in black and colored it with copics.  I added a bit of read border on the bottom to anchor it.
This next card uses stamps from the Wreath4me set, too.  I went with more of a vintage look on this card.  It looks much better IRL!  I colored the wreath with dye inks and a blender pen.  I carefully coated it with Rock Candy Crackle paint.  After it dried, I sponged distress inks over the entire thing so that they got down into the crackled parts.  It really makes it look like it has been sitting in a box in an attic for the past 70 years!  I added some green burlap string to finish it off.
This next card uses a sentiment from penguins4Christmas and the large spiros from spiros2stamp.  I simply added red rhinestones in various sizes for the berries and a bow on top.  More of a modern looking wreath, with classic Christmas colors.

Thanks for stopping by today!
