Wreaths: Round Two (pun intended)

Feather Wreath
Last week I experimented with my Doodle Blossoms Stamp Set to see if I could make wreaths.  I loved, loved, loved how those wreath cards turned out.  If you missed it click here.  I was looking through my Pink Bunkadoo stamps when I picked up my Petite Feather stamp.  I had to make a wreath with it!

Adding a layer of white keeps colors vivid.
I used my trusty circle I'd punched out previously and traced around it.  Then I stamped the feather around the circle in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on some Neenah Kraft cover.  I dried it with my heat tool so I could get to playing.  

layering fall colors
You probably already know this, but if you stamp on darker paper, you can color your image with a white colored pencil first and then your other colored pencils will be vivid.  That's what I did right after stamping.  Honestly, just coloring it white looked pretty cool.  

I began layering colors on the feather using Derwent Intense Pencils.  I'd never used them before.  They slide on easily and have a creamier feel than my usual pencils.  Unfortunately my daughter took them when she left, but maybe Santa will bring me some!  

And back to the coloring.  I colored over the white with yellow.  Then I colored almost completely over the yellow with orange.  With each color, I went over each feather a little less.  I used red, tan, brown and dark brown.  Such rich fall colors!  

A wink of stella dabbed over the top help blend the pencil and deepen the colors.  Then I used a scripture stamp from Our Daily Bread.

Am I done with wreath cards? Maybe.  Am I done with my Doodle Blossoms stamp set?  Never!

What goes around, comes around when we're talking wreaths.
