Bottlebrush Holiday

Welcome to Saturday and a lovely fall weekend!  Today kicks off the Power Poppy October release.  Full of beautiful holiday images and sentiments…lets start with Bottlebrush Holiday!


Bottlebrush trees are all the rage these days and they are so beautiful in many different colors.  Just beautiful to create vintage designs!


I stamped the HO three times on white card stock and colored the bottlebrush wreath with Copic markers.  I cut out each a matted it before layering it over lovely vintage looking patterned paper from the Authentique Festive pad.   I added three strands of hemp twine and a button with some tiny holly leaves I punched to finish it off.  I also added a bit of sparkle to each ornament on the wreaths with a  Spica pen from Copic.
There’s so much inspiration to be found with our Bloom Brigade.  Visit each one below for more!

I like the woven ribbon with these wreaths, gives a warm feel. The ho ho ho out in squares is a great touch. Very pretty Danielle!
