Hello Watercolor Friends,
I made this fun birthday card for the Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend using the cowboy boot from the 4871 - WC Rustic Container Set. I stamped it in brown 969, then stamped it off on post-it tape, cut that out then covered the boot, inked up the stamp again and used the 4774 - stamp positioner to stamp the second boot. I pulled the color out of the lines then watercolored the boots in the brown 969 and pink 725 from the palette. I used the 40 brownish grey to watercolor in the ground for the boots and then shade from one boot to the other boot. Next I stamped the flowers from 5008 - WC Flower Set 3 in the boot and one on the ground using the 177, 636, and 725. I touched the flowers with a little water to bring out the color then stamped more flowers only, no stems. I die cut a balloon in pink glitter paper and glued it above the flowers and drew the black string using my favorite Copic pen 0.03. Then I used blue 528 on the palette to color in the sky. I used the purple 636 to make a shadow of the flower on the ground. I used an 5065 - Oval Double Stitched die to cut out my scene and a 5063 - Rectangle Double Stitched die out of the purple paper for the background. I used the 5064 - Circle Double Stitched Dies to cut out a piece of the pink glitter paper and the white paper for my sentiment. I stamped the sentiment "Love You" from the 4903 - WC Sentiments Set set in the brown 969 and used a foam square to give it some dimension. I stamped the inside with a "Happy Birthday" sentiment. Hope you get inspired to try this yourself. Use the cactus stamps and make a card for a male. I'm always looking for those kinds of cards with all of the males in my family.
