Watercolor Weekend January 18, 2019



Hello,

I made this card made for the Art Impression's Watercolor Weekend. I just love this raccoon from the 4208 - Furries TF set and doesn't he look like he's startled or forgotten a birthday? I stamped the raccoon and then I stamped a mask for him on post-it tape, cut it out and covered him up. I then used my Misti to stamp the bench in 969 from the 5066 - Light to my Path set in the perfect spot. I pulled the color out of the lines then got to watercoloring the raccoon with 969, N25, and 565. I colored the bench with 379.  I used 993 for the light and even colored around the outside of the light with it. Next, I stamped the foliage in 228 from the 5126 - WC Foliage Set 4 - both the vines and the grass. I pulled the color out of the lines then I added the flower in 177 and 743 from the 4868 - WC Flower Set 2. I used 177 on the palette to watercolor between the stones. I used 565 to watercolor the sky, the shadows under the bench and under the raccoon. I used a fine tip black marker to add some details back into the raccoon. I cut out my scene and background piece of paper using the 5062 - Rounded Rectangle Double Stitched Dies.

Just a note to say hi January 14, 2019


Hello,

I thought I was making a Christmas card (getting started really early!) but it turned out more like a "winter hello card" so I went with that sentiment from the 5228 - SBC Exclusive Hydrangeas set. If you haven't seen those sentiments (in beautiful fonts) you really should check them out. I stamped the bike from the 5124 - WC Bicycle Set first, then stamped it on masking paper and covered it up. I then stamped the lamp post from the 5197 - WC Winter Kids Set and stamped it on post-it tape to cover it up. Then I used the 4960 - WC Fir Trees Set to stamp the three trees.  I pulled off the masks, then I added water to the trees. I watercolored the bike and lamppost next then added the flowers and grass to the baskets and ground.  I cut out my scene and a background piece of paper using the 5063 - Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Dies.
