Ai Watercolor Weekend March 19, 2021



It's starting to look like Spring in Vegas and Easter cards need to be made. I'm out of practice after having my craft room occupied for over a month but I  hope you all like my card I made for the Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend. The twice a month posts can be found on the Ai website. If you would like to make this card, stamp any of the gate stamps but I used the 5067 Gates of Righteousness Set inked in first Tombow 969 then in 565. Pull the color out of the lines, then stamp the bunny from the 4874 WC Bunnies Set inked in 969. Pull the color out of the lines, then color in the ears and cheeks with 725. Use a little bit of 565 to add some shade on the bunny and underneath him. Fun fact, my brothers and I had solid white bunnies in a cage in our back yard when I was in the 5th grade. Use a 2.0mm Molotow pen to mask off where the yellow roses are and when it's dry, use the foliage from the 4051 Foliage Set 1 inked in 249 to stamp in the foliage around the gate. Dab at the leaves with a wet brush. Stamp the foliage from the 4867 Foliage Set 2 inked in 177 for the pink flowers. Stamp the flowers from the Flower Set 4052 inked in 725 and dab at them with a wet brush. Ink the grass from the 4051 Foliage Set inked in 177 and pull the color up and out. Use 565 for the shadows under the plants and grass and stones. Use some 177 on the palette to add some green to the ground. Use 525 on the palette to color in the sky and some reflection on the gate. Erase the Molotow and use the fine tip of the 025 pen to draw in the yellow roses and dab at them with water. The little Happy Easter sign is from the 4976 HM Easter Set and I used foam tape to give it some dimension. Darken the eyes and add whiskers to the bunny with a fine tip black pen. Use the 5063 A2 Rectangle Dies to cut out your scene and a background piece of paper.
