Ai Watercolor Weekend April 30, 2021


The theme for the Art Impression's Watercolor Weekend is quick and easy and this card certainly was that. If you would like to make it, first stamp the birdhouse (not the post) from the 5261 Large Birdhouse Set inked in Tombow 969 and 565 and stamped off on scrap paper into the middle of your watercolor paper - I used Canson.  Stamp it again on a piece of watercolor paper and cut it out so you can color it up and use foam tape to add dimension to your card.  Stamp the tree from the 5010 Tree Set 1 inked in 969 above the birdhouse.  Use the vine from the 4051 Foliage Set 1 first inked in 177 and then stamp it inked in 173. I just love those two colors together.  Dab at them with a wet brush, then use some 969 off the palette to color in the branch. Use the largest foliage set from 4051 inked in 177 to add the flower bush below the birdhouse. Stamp the flowers from 5008 Flower Set 3 inked in 249 for the stems and 685 for the flowers onto the bush. Ink the bird from the 5261 Large Birdhouse Set inked in 565 and then color it in with 526. Darken the beak and eye with a fine point black pen. Drag the color out of the lines of the birdhouse just around the outside for a sky look.  Color the roof and bottom of the other birdhouse in 969 and then use the 565 to darken the windows. Use some 565 on the palette to add shade under the posts. Use a ruler to draw a line above the birdhouse to the branch. Use the 5063 Rectangle Die Set to cut it out and a background piece.
