Watercolor Weekend October 21, 2017






Hello Friends,

I made this card for the Watercolor Weekend round up on the Art Impressions blog. You may recognize this bench as the one with a sleeping kitten on it, 3545 but I didn't ink up the cat.  I took the sleeping puppy and used the 4774 - stamp positioner to place the dog right where I wanted him.  Then I added fall trees, leaves and grasses.

Stamps
4959 - WC Dogs Set
3545 - WC Series 7 Set 2
4808 - Covered Bridge Mini Set
4807 - Old Barn Mini Set
4875 - Garden Wagon Mini Set


Other supplies:
NO. 6 brown
NO. 28 English red
NO. 45 sepia
NO. 13 ochre
NO. 56 dull blue
NO. 49 vermilion
Tombow N15
4773 - Acrylic Blocks
#4 Paint Brush

I made this on Strathmore watercolor paper.

Watercolor Wednesday from Art Impressions on YouTube October 11, 2017



Hi Friends,

I loved Art Impression's owner/creator Bonnie Krebs' version of this wreath on yesterday's Watercolor Wednesday on YouTube, made with red, white, blue and green but I had to try it in fall colors.  Check out her video to see how to make it.  So fun and easy!

Watercolor Wednesdays on YouTube October 4, 2017



My favorite day of the week is Watercolor Wednesdays on YouTube by Art Impression's creator Bonnie Krebs.  This adorable cottage was this week's tutorial from Bonnie.  I was so glad I had the stamps and the fence die so I could make this one because it's so perfect framed for my cottage room.  You can always use whatever stamps you have to make something similar.  Give it a try!

Day 28 of the Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge


I watercolored this card for day 28 of #thedailymarker30day coloring challenge.  I used the new WC Fall Set - 4963 from Art Impressions.  The bird is from the new WC Bird Bath Set - 4966 which truly is one of my most favorites from the new ones.  It's a must have in my opinion.  You get six birds, a bird bath and two really cute little birdhouses.  I used a pot from the WC Ornate Container Set - 4870.  The stand is from inking only the bottom part of the stamp from the WC Series 5 Set 2 - 4059.

I can't believe the coloring challenge is almost over.  It's been so much fun!  I haven't been able to color every day like I usually do but I'm happy with the amount of coloring I did get done.  I've really enjoyed being one of the goodwill ambassadors for the fabulous Kathy Racoosin who is the host of the coloring challenges.  I hope everyone found some time to color!
