Cards for Kindness Ai WW July 31, 2020


All of the Art Impression's Design Team members are participating in the Cards for Kindness event hosted by and here are the 10 cards that I am sending. You can click here for more information on the event. I usually participate in these types of events because who doesn't get excited to get a homemade card AND I love making cards so I usually have an abundance.

To recreate the fall scene card above, first stamp the birdhouse from the 5261 Large Birdhouse Set in the center of your paper after inking it in both the Tombow 969 and the 565 pens. Use the stamp positioner to stamp the basket and the apples from the 5059 Harvest Set on one side of the birdhouse, inked the same 969 and 565 and the cat from the 4873 Cats Set on the other side.  Next pull the colors out of the lines on all three images then watercolor the roof and the posts with the Tombow 837.  Stamp the leaves from the 4605 Basket Set in the 837, then in the 947 and then in the 993. Watercolor the windows of the birdhouse in 565. Use 565 to add shade lines under the posts and anywhere you think shadows should be. Next watercolor the apples in the 837 but be sure to leave a highlight so they look more round. Watercolor the leaves in 177. Add shadows between the apples with the tip of a fine tip Copic Multi liner. Color the basket in 969 and the metal parts in the N45. Watercolor the cat with the N45 and use a touch of the 837 for the cat's ear and cheeks.  Use a fine tip pin the add the whiskers and  darken the eyes and nose. Use the foliage from the 5126 Foliage Set 4 and stamp it around first in the 993 then in the 947. Use some of the 947 to make the dirt and then use 565 to add the shadows under the apple basket and the cat. Use 565 to watercolor in the sky.
