Hello Watercolor Friends!

If you haven't watched Art Impression's owner/creator Bonnie Krebs Watercolor Wednesday tutorial on YouTube - go check it out right now!  So fun and perfect for those holiday cards we are all trying to get done.  I added a little snow bunny and hope to see other ideas out there soon, so I can make more holiday cards.  I have to get busy now, preparing for Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow.  Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Watercolor Weekend November 18, 2017





Hello Watercolor Friends,

I made a shaker card for the Watercolor Weekend Round-up on the Art Impressions blog this weekend.  I used the 4702 - Wooden Door stamps for this one.  I love purple and green together so I made the door purple.  I knew I wanted to add multi-colored lights on the house, wreath and fir trees which I made using the new 4960 - WC Fir Trees Set.  I used a Sakura Gelly Roll pen to add that little bit of sparkle to the lights and the snow. 

I just used the fine tip of the Marvy LePlume II pens to draw the multi-colored lights:
NO. 79 grape
NO. 75 sky blue
NO. 86 African violet
NO. 13 ochre
NO. 48 leaf green
NO. 46 crimson lake
NO. 72 pine green
NO. 45 sepia

4773 - Acrylic Blocks
#4 Paint Brush

I made this on Canson 140 lb watercolor paper.

Watercolor Weekend November 4, 2017









Hello Watercolor friends,

I don't know about you but Christmas always sneaks up on me, so I like to start my cards early. I love the traditional red and green for my Christmas decorations. I made this card using the Art Impressions WC Series 4 Set 1 - 4097.  Art Impressions Creator/Owner Bonnie Krebs has a wonderful Watercolor Wednesday tutorial on YouTube using this stamp set that you should try. I used the new 4960 - WC Fir Trees Set to make the wreath.  I added the snow with my Signo uni-ball white gel pen and I added some glitter using a Sakura Gelly Roll pen that is easier to see in the close-up photo.  

I only used four Marvy LePlume II pens 
NO. 86 African violet
NO. 45 sepia
NO. 28 English red
NO. 72 pine green

4773 - Acrylic Blocks
#4 Paint Brush

I made this on Canson watercolor paper.

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

NO. 45 sepia
NO. 13 ochre
NO. 56 dull blue

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!
