Watercolor Weekend April 20, 2019



Hello Friends,

Happy Easter weekend! I made this Easter card for the Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend.  I stamped three bunnies from the 4874 - WC Bunnies Set using the 40 brownish grey, then pulled the color out of the lines for the shading. I stamped masks out of post-it tape for the two bunnies then stamped the tree from the 5056 - WC Fairy Doors Set using 969. I  used brown 969 from the palette to watercolor the tree and then I stamped the leaves in green 177 from the 4051 - WC Foliage Set 1 and added water to soften the lines.  I stamped the basket from UMG4117 in the 40 brownish grey. I used 86 African violet to shade the basket and watercolored each of the eggs with the pink 725, 17 steel blue, 5 yellow, 48 leaf green and 7 orange. I colored the bunny's ear and cheeks using the pink 725. The grass is from the 4051 - WC Foliage Set 1 and stamped in 48 leaf green and the flowers are from the 4868 - WC Flower Set 2 in the green 177 and pink 725.  I colored the sky using 75 sky blue. I used my Copic pen to sign and date it.  I cut it out and framed it using the 5062 - Rounded Corner Rectangle Dies.  The sentiment flag was cut from the 5133 Flag Double Stitched Dies.

Watercolor Weekend April 6, 2019



Hello Friends,

Easter is less than a month away and I need to get busy making Easter cards. I made this card for the Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend using the new 5123 - WC Decorative Jar Set. First I colored the teapot stamp in 696 then in 565 and stamped it off before stamping it on the paper. I then colored it in using 603.  I used the stamp positioner to stamp the bunny from 4874 - WC Bunnies Set in the pot using 40 brownish grey, which I also used for the shadow under the teapot. I colored the bunny's ear and cheeks using 67 bubble gum pink and 177. I then stamped the flowers from the 4052 - WC Flower Set 1 in the pink as well. The other flowers are from the 4876 - Wooden Chair Mini Set and they are stamped in the 565 and 177. I added the grass from the 4051 - WC Foliage Set 1 in 177. I used the sign and eggs and bow from the 4976 Holiday Mansion Easter Set, then colored them in using the same colors.  I colored the sky using 75 sky blue. I added some glitter using a Wink of Stella glitter pen. I used my Copic pen to sign and date it.  I cut it out and framed it using the 5064 - Double Stitched Circular Die Set and a rounded corner punch for the card base.
