Watercolor Weekend March 2, 2019

Hello Watercolor Friends,

I am in love with this brand new 5124 - WC Bicycle set! I made this birthday card for the Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend using the largest bike stamp (there are four bikes in the set!)  First I used the 45 Sepia, then the 86 African violet to ink up the bike and then I stamped it. I pulled the color out of the lines then used the 105 lt. teal on the palette to color the baskets and chain cover. I used N25 on the palette to watercolor the bike seat, handlebar grip, pedal and tires.  Next I watercolored the bike body in the 94 scarlet. I used a ruler and a pencil to draw the present in the back basket.  I watercolored it in 34 pale green and painted the ribbon in the 94 scarlet.  I used my white Signo pigment pen to outline the ribbon like it's high lighted.  I used the 15 olive green on the mini foliage stamp from the 5009 - WC Mini Flower Set to fill the front bucket with leaves, added water and then I used the 3 hearts in the same stamp set with the 94 scarlet to stamp the flowers in the basket. I dabbed the flowers with water.  Next, I took the grass from the brand new 5126 - WC Foliage Set 4 and the 72 pine green and stamped in the grass along the ground.  I took some of the same green on the palette and colored in the ground under the bike. I used 105 lt. teal and lots of water to color in the sky.  I punched out three pink glitter paper hearts and glued them above the bike like they were balloons and used a ruler and my Copic Multiliner 0.03 pen to draw the strings and then outlined the present. I used a pencil and a ruler to draw in the spokes on the wheels.  I signed it with my Copic pen and then cut it out using one of the 5061 - Double Stitched Square dies. I cut out the blue banner using the 5134 - Double Stitched Banner die set and a scalloped rectangle die for the next layer and stamped that sentiment from the brand new 5136 - WC Sentiment Set 2 and then cut it out using the smallest 5063 - Rectangle Double Stitched die.
