Art Impressions New Release February 27, 2020


I am in love with all of the new release from Art Impressions and today I am showing you a card made with the brand new 5261 - WC Large Birdhouse Set. It has two beautiful birdhouses along with three new birds. I stamped the cat from the 4873 - WC Cats Set inked in 969 first, then made a mask and covered it before stamping the birdhouse, after inking it with the 979 then the 565. I pulled the color out of the lines of the birdhouse and cat then watercolored the cat in N45. I used a fine tip black marker to darken the eyes, ears and areas of the cat. I watercolored the birdhouse with 407 and darkened the windows and made the shaded areas with my dirty (mixed with 969) 565 Tombow marker. I stamped the flowers from the 5008 - WC Flower Set 3 inked in 177 and 725 then touched them with a wet brush. I wanted to add another color so I used the fine tip end of the 993 to dot each flower and dabbed at them with a wet brush again. I stamped the grasses from the 5007 inked in 177 then watercolored the ground with the 177 off the palette. Next, I stamped the blue cardinal from the 5261 - WC Large Birdhouse Set onto the roof, using the stamp positioner, inked in 969. I colored him with 526 and used the fine tip marker to draw the line under his beak and to darken his eye. I used 526 to watercolor the sky. I used a Sakura Glitter Gelly Roll pen on the flowers and eyes but it doesn't show up in my picture. I cut out my scene with the 5132 - Tag Stitched dies and the background pieces with the 5063 - Rectangle Double Stitched Dies
