  December 2016 Blog Hop Inspiration

You may be just starting the blog hop or have come from Heather’s Blog.

I opted to stick with the wreaths and the colors!  Both stamps are from Great Impressions, one of our sponsors. Dec HOC 1 (565x640)

I stamped the wreath and heat embossed in brown.  Then using a variety of distress inks, I watercolored the wreath.  I added the sentiment and then did a bit of die cutting so that I could layer up the image! Dec HOC 2 (640x492)

Thanks for stopping in!  Your next stop is Judy's Blog
