Floral Card Challenge March 7, 2019


Hello Watercolor Friends,

Ready for MORE brand new Art Impressions stamps, including an awesome set of five bridges in this one 5122 - WC Bridge Set?  I would love to cross a pretty bridge like this one. I wanted to surround it with flowers and flowering bushes. I stamped the bridge in the center, after inking it with 565 and then stamping it off once on a piece of scrap paper.  I pulled the color out of the lines and added a little bit of the 565 to the palette to darken the underside of the bridge and to create the stream.  Then I took the bush stamp from the 4051 - WC Foliage Set 1 to create those big blue bushes in the back.  Next I inked up the little vines from the brand new 5126 - WC Foliage Set 4 with 177 and stamped them all around the water and bridge. I'm in love with this new foliage set and it has 3 sets that go both ways,  it's definitely a must have!  I added water to them, then I added flowers everywhere by inking up just three of the tiny flowers from 4052 - WC Flowers set 1 using the 8 violet.  I added water to them.  I took white paint and tiny stylus and dotted in the centers of many of the little flowers.  Next I took the little grasses from the new 5126 - WC Foliage Set 4 and inked them up with the 72 pine green pen and stamped them around.  I used the little grass from 4051 - WC Foliage Set 1 and the 177 pen to ink it and stamped the grass all around and added water.  I used green from palette to color in the path.  I added 528 to my palette and a lot of water to color in the sky.  I used my Copic multi liner 0.03 pen to sign it and drew in the lines under the bridge.  I used the 5062 - Double Stitched Rounded Rectangle dies to cut out my picture and a background piece.  I used this brand new  5133 - Flag double stitched die set to cut out the sentiment flag and stamped it with the "hello" from the brand new 5136 - WC sentiments set 2.
