Ai Watercolor Weekend Exclusive Floral Set April 4, 2020



Hello,

Thank goodness we have our arts and crafts during these stay at home days of the Corona Virus Pandemic! Hope this finds you healthy and safe. I used the brand new 5228 - SBC Exclusive Daisies Set to make my card for the Watercolor Weekend post on the Art Impressions Blog. I stamped the 4701 - Clay Pot first using No. 40 brownish grey ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. I pulled the color out of the lines and then added NO. 40 brownish grey to the sides of the pot. I just love pink Gerber Daisies so I stamped the daisies in and on the pot using grey archival ink. I watercolored them from the palette using 772  and the No. 1 watercolor brush. I dabbed at the centers of the flowers with the 743 fine point end. I stamped the grasses from the 5126 - WC Foliage Set inked in 177, pulled the color out and added some green to the ground. I then inked up the grasses with 173 and stamped them over the other grasses. I stamped the vine from that same foliage set inked in 177 and dabbed at them with a wet brush.  Once again, I inked up the vines in 173 (bright green) and stamped them on top of the other vines. I used 526 for the sky and 565 to the ground in front of the pot.  I cut it out with the Oval Die set and cut out the background papers with the Rectangle Rounded Corner dies. I stamped that sentiment (I love!) in coffee archival ink and then used the label die to cut it out. I added some Wink of Stella glitter to the flowers but it doesn't show up in the photo.
