Watercolor Weekend May 5, 2018



Hello Watercolor Friends,

This is my card for the Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend roundup.  It's influenced heavily by Art Impression's Bonnie Krebs' recent Watercolor Wednesday on YouTube.  She uses the 2018 Class Exclusive stamp set you can only get by attending one of the shows. I haven't been lucky enough to attend one yet, so I had to use stamps I already owned.  I used seven stamp sets and seven markers to create it.  See my list of supplies below:

5014 - WC Window Set
4868 - WC Flower Set 2
4867 - WC Foliage Set 2
4964 - WC Branches Set
5009 - WC Mini Flower Set
4051 - WC Foliage Set 1
4208 - Furries TF

Marvy LePlume II Pens used:
NO. 45 sepia
NO. 15 olive green
NO. 8 violet
NO. 1 black
NO. 72 pine green
NO. 86 African violet
NO. 20 magenta

4774 - Stamp positioner
4773 - Acrylic Blocks
#4 Paint Brush

I made this on Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock

Watercolor Weekend April 21, 2018








Hello Watercolor Friends,

This is my project for the Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend roundup. I thought these little .99 cent cardboard boxes from Hobby Lobby would make cute keepsake boxes for my granddaughters. I painted this one white and then attached the watercolored scene to the top using extra strong double sided tape. I used five stamp sets and four markers to create it.  See my list of supplies below:

5011 - WC Truck Mini Set
5012 - WC Wishing Well Set
5009 - WC Mini Flower Set
4051 - WC Foliage Set 1
5016 - WC Mini Critter Set

Marvy LePlume II Pens used:
NO. 45 sepia
NO. 72 pine green
NO. 86 African violet
NO. 20 magenta

4774 - Stamp positioner
4773 - Acrylic Blocks

Happy Easter Card


I made this card for my friend Connie Myers.  I used Art Impressions stamps and Marvy LePlume II pens and other supplies that you can get from the Art Impressions website, click here. My card is similar to one I made a long time ago but no two ever look the same.  Especially if you change your colors and some of the flowers, which is what I did.

Happy Easter Friends!

Watercolor Truck from Art Impressions


Hello Watercolor Friends,

Do you find you always need a masculine birthday card?  The new 5011 - WC truck stamp set from Art Impressions is perfect and you can fill it with whatever you can imagine.  We used to live on a horse ranch with a barn almost exactly like that one but it was painted yellow with white trim.  We also owned a blue 1955 Chevy truck, very similar to this truck.  I reversed the colors but it so reminds me of those days so long ago in Bison, Kansas.

Happy stamping and watercoloring!
