Coffee Lover’s Christmas Wreath by Becca

December 18, 2019

We all have someone in our life that loves coffee and Christmas is right around the corner, so lets combine the two for a coffee lover’s Christmas wreath!

I started this card with a 4″ square piece of bristol smooth paper. I used my Gina K wreath builder stencil and a stamp positioning tool to stamp the regular coffee mug from Mug Life around a circle. I made sure to use a waterproof ink so it doesn’t bleed when I move onto the next step.

To color the wreath behind the coffee mugs I scribbled Arteza real brush pens onto my glass mat. I picked them up with a wet paintbrush and loosely painted the ink around the mugs. I painted several layers, letting it dry in between, to get a textured watercolor look.

To color the mugs I went direct to paper with the marker, then blended the color out with a wet paint brush. This is a more concentrated color which makes the mugs stand out against the background, even though they used the same markers.

To add some greenery to the wreath I used the small leaf image from #beautifulmess. I colored the stamp with the markers and spritzed it with water to continue the watercolor look. Using Candied Apple Distress Oxide I stamped a sentiment in the middle of the wreath and circles to be berries. 

I added the panel to a 4.25″ square note card. I added Stickles in the color Joyful on top of the red berries for some sparkle, and a red bow from Sherry Bows beneath the sentiment.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and get to enjoy some time with family and friends.
