Watercolor Weekend March 7, 2020


I bet you are in love with the brand new 5260 - WC Shops Set like I am! I can see this set being used again and again. I stamped the cafe on Bristol Smooth paper after inking it up with 969 then 565. I pulled the color out of the lines and then I inked the flowers from the 5009 - WC Mini Flower Set in 177 and 636 in the flower boxes on the lower level and inked in 177 and 993 for the flowers up top. I stamped the metal flower and birdhouse from the brand new 5264 - WC Decorative Post Set. It's a must have set with six metal pieces. I stamped the light from the 5263 - WC Lamp Post Set (using the stamp positioner). I used 636 to watercolor the sign, roof, flower, birdhouse, the light, awning and flower boxes. I used 526 to watercolor the windows. I watercolored the chimney, steps, tree trunk and front door with 969. I inked up the foliage from 4051 Foliage Set 1in 177 then stamped the tree leaves. I used the small grass from that same set 4051 inked in 177 to stamp the grass, then pulled the color up and out. I watercolored the sky in 525. I finished off my scene by using 565 off the palette to shade the ground, under the flower boxes, around the door and tree and under the signs and ledges. I used a black extra fine tip pen to add in lines that washed away. I cut it out using the 5061 - Square Double Stitched Die Set.
