You Brighten My Day!

I just love that puppy from Art Impressions! I finally got this 4762 Wooden Gate from Ai and I love how the puppy in front brings it to life. This is a quick and easy one. Start by inking up the puppy from the 4959 Dog Set with the brown Tombow 969 marker and stamping it on your watercolor paper. Make a mask on post-it tape, cut it out and cover the puppy. Ink up the gate in the brown 969, then 565 blue and stamp it off before you stamp it on your watercolor paper. You can use the stamp positioner to put the gate exactly where you want it. Pull the color out of the lines of the gate and puppy then use the light grey N75 to watercolor the gate. Ink the flowers from the gate set in 158 green and 775 pink or any colors you want to use. Use the vine from the 5007 - Foliage Set 3 inked in the 158 to add more foliage. Ink the small grass set from the 4051 Foliage Set 1 in the 158 and stamp it on either side of the gate. Ink the heart flowers in 606 purple from the 4868 Flower Set 2 and then dab at all the greenery and flowers with a wet brush tip. Use 526 to watercolor some sky in. Use some 565 on the palette to add some shadows under the dog and the gate. Use some grey or black for the dog's ears and tail. Use the pink on his cheeks. Use a very fine black ink pen to darken his eyes, nose and mouth. I also used that pen to add details to the gate hinges and lock. Ink up that sentiment from the 5229 - SBC Exclusive Hydrangeas Set in Versa Fine Black Ink and put your card in a Misti or other stamp platform because after all that work, you don't want to mess it up. Of course, I learned that the hard way! Cut out your picture and background paper with the 5062 - Rounded Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Dies and adhere it to a card. If you want some sparkle and shine on your card, use Wink of Stella on the flowers, gate and the puppy's cheeks and ears.  It doesn't show in the picture but it's so beautiful in real life.
