Watercolor Weekend February 15, 2020


The weather has been wonderful in Las Vegas so I made this Spring like card for the Art Impression's Watercolor Weekend. I actually used Ranger Archival Ink in Coffee to stamp the boots from the 5194 - WC Shoe Set and the umbrella from the 5118 - WC Beach Girls Set. I knew I was going to put glossy accents on them and I didn't want the lines to blur. The glossy accents really makes the boots and umbrella look like they are made of vinyl or rubber. Next, I watercolored them in 993 and 977. To add the shadows, I used 565. I masked off the boots, then stamped in the flowers from 4868 in 177 and No. 6 violet. Then I stamped the flower from the Flower Set 4052 in 177 and 755. The foliage is from 5126 - WC Foliage Set 4 inked in 177. Then, I dabbed at the flowers and foliage with a wet brush. I used 565 to paint the ground shadows and the sky. I used the 5063 - Double Stitched Rectangle A2 dies to cut out my scene and the background pieces. I put it all together and then added the glossy accents. Set it aside, in a safe place for a few hours, so it can dry.  I accidentally dropped mine and ruined my first one.
