Ai Watercolor Weekend April 18, 2020


It's hard to photograph how pretty and shiny this card is in real life. Have you seen this new stamp set from 5366 - Greenery Invites? It has lots of beautiful foliage and sentiments. You could definitely use this set for wedding invitations. I used Versa Mark to emboss the triple circles and the "Thank You" in that shiny gold. I inked up the foliage with the 177 pen for the upper foliage and I inked the lower foliage in the 249 pen. I pulled the color out of the lines, then added some 173 from the palette to some of the leaves. I added 636 to the palette and watercolored some of the upper foliage. I used 407 on the palette to watercolor some sky and it mixed with the greens as I dabbed all around the foliage. I used the Rectangle Rounded Corner die for the watercolor paper and the background piece. The "I love you" sentiment was from the 5230 - SBC Exclusive Roses Set and I inked it in 177. I wet my brush and pulled the color out around the letters. I cut out a Flag die in that bright gold paper and a strip for the top piece then adhered it all to the card base.
