Watercolor Weekend October 5, 2019

Hello Friends,

Have you seen the new stamp set from Art Impressions 5197 - WC Winter Kids Set? It is fabulous and my favorite from the new release! I made this card for the Watercolor Weekend and I'm sure I will be making many more in different ways and colors for Christmas. I inked both stamps the same way, in both 969 and 565, then I stamped it off on scratch paper first before I stamped it on my watercolor paper. I pulled the color out of the lines, then I watercolored everything. I used 757 on the snowman's hat band, gloves, scarf and the hat on the little girl and the sweater of the little boy. I used the fine tip to draw the strings on the girl's scarf. You would think I used black on the snowman's hat, boy's boots and little girl's pants but it was just the color of the 969 mixed with the 565 that came out of the 565 pen when I scribbled it on the palette. I used two greens on the clothes and scarves, 158 and 249. I used 757 and the #1 brush to paint the lines on the snowman's scarf. I used 969 on the little girl's boots and the branch arm of the snowman. I used 88 terra cotta for the carrot nose. I used 77 pastel peach on the little kids' faces and 67 bubble gum pink on their cheeks. I used African violet on the palette to paint the snow and sky and shadows on the snowman. I took my fine tipped Copic pen to darken the eyes, mouth and buttons of the snowman and to darken some of the lines of all the images, including the kids' eyelashes. I took my white Uni-ball Signo pen and added snow everywhere. I cut out my image and the background paper with the 5062 - Rounded Rectangle Dies. I typed and printed that sentiment (that you can't say without singing) on my computer and then cut it out using the 5134 - Banner Stitched Dies along with a smaller tag out of the background paper.
