A Merry Un-Christmas Christmas

Huh?  Let me explain.  The Everything Wendy Vecchi (EWV) yahoo group has been having a challenge.  Create some Christmas art that uses any of Wendy's non Christmas stamps.  Hence the un-Christmas Christmas greeting.  I wasn't being a grinch.
I'd like to share two little wall hangings I did.
First, look at this picture of one of Wendy's flower stamps:

I stamped it many times in shades of green, then cut the petals apart and made a tree:

It is mounted on chipboard covered with sheet music and paper which has been embossed and sanded.
For my next piece, I stamped a flourish MANY times, curled one end of each and formed a wreath.  Technically, this wasn't for the un-Christmas challenge (it was another challenge), but since I made a Christmas piece with a non Christmas stamp, I'm saying it is.

Well, in case I'm not back here in the next two days, I want to wish you all a very very happy and healthy Christmas with your family and friends.

Wow! The tree is amazing. I don't know how you looked at that stamp and saw a tree. And forget about that wreath made from the flourish stamp! What kind of mind creates these amazing 3-D items from a stamped image? The mind of a genius. Thanks for sharing.
