watercolor wreath tag

I adore Margaret Berg's beautiful watercolors! Her work is gorgeous and happy. I find her so inspiring and this piece...
...inspired the little Christmas tag I want to share with you today:
To create this tag, start with a circle cut from smooth watercolor paper and stamp a pine branch in Distress Ink. I curved the branch stamp on my acrylic block to help create the wreath.
With a waterbrush, apply more Distress Ink in various shades of green to the branch for a watercolor effect.
Continue to stamp & watercolor branches, along with "freeform" branches and circle.

Stamp flowers, berries and holly leaves as desired. Add a few extras dots of color if you need to round out your wreath like I did (it was very square, LOL).


Add sentiment to the center and ta-da!
Hope your having a great day!

xo,
Carly
