Sometimes you just have to use a non-AI-watercolor stamp using an AI-watercolor technique. And it works! Even if you’ve never done AI watercolor and have no interest in it, you CAN do the technique along with this wreath stamp set and some water-based markers. I’ll be using my set of Tombow markers – assembled by Ellen Hutson’s team just so you can pick up a set of colors that I use regularly called Sandy’s Favorites:

I sat down to make just one wreath, or three so I could show you all the wreaths in the set – and ended up making way more than these shown – goodness gracious are they addictive!
Each one of these cards has a nice closeup of the finished image, then the color swatches used for each one – you can use all kinds of color combos though. I find the unexpected ones are better than the “usual suspects”!
If you have other AI stamps like Watercolor Mini Cottages, you can add a simple scene inside a wreath….also think about other stamps in your collection that could be sweet inside a wreath.
A simple sentiment inside a wreath also works – using the same multiple colors as were used for the leaves.
This combo has the dark purple stamped on top of the wet pigment:
The stamp set has swags in different formations so you can create this simple circle with other types of sprays of leaves.
My favorite of the stamps – love the different kinds of leaves, and adding the extra berries gives it an even lacier feel.
With a little less color variety….still very pretty and ready for fall!
And what year-round set of cards would be filled out without a winter scene? This one has the pupper in it with a simple treeline, but see the supply list below for more critters too.
