Ai Watercolor Weekend June 25, 2021


Here's another brand new release from Art impressions! Now we can have a lake in our scenes. To make this one, ink up the 5430 Simple Scene Lake using Tombow 565 for the water and I used 177 for the hill but probably should have used the N89. I covered up the line with the little tree line from the 5372 Mini Foliage set inked in 177.  Ink up some of the little houses from the 5370 Village set in 969 and 565. Pull the color out of the lines and color in the roofs with 969. Use the Tombow TwinTone in blue for the windows and doors. Ink the pine trees from the 5372 set in 249. Ink the tree trunks in 969 and then the tree tops in 177. The little grass is also inked in 177. The fence is inked in 969. The lake is watercolored with 565. Ink the 5198 Mountain Set in both 969 and 565 then stamp it off on scratch paper. The sky is 565 and so are the shadows. The horse is from the 5428 Silhouette Horses inked in 969 and in N25 for the tail and mane. The grass in front is from the 4051 Foliage Set 1inked in 177.

Happy Birthday, Tad June 18, 2021


I made this card for my husband, Tad who turned 57. This could be our dream property. We both would love to live there! I used the brand new 5431 Simple Scene Rocky River stamp with Tombow 565 and 969 and stamped it off on scratch paper first. I stamped the barn and cabin from the 5371 - Barn Set and 5262 Mini Cabins Set inked in both the 565 and 969 and stamped them off as well. I stamped the mountains from the 5198 Mountain Set exactly the same way. The horses are from the brand new 5428 Silhouette Horses Set and you do not stamp therm off first.  A must have in my opinion! I used my extra fine black pen to add the tails and manes to the horses. Fun fact: my husband and I used to live on a horse farm in Kansas when we were first married. I once braided all of the horses manes with all different colors of yarn and our pasture was so pretty and colorful!

Happy Friday June 18, 2021


Did you guys see Art Impression's Owner/Creator Bonnie Krebs' tutorial on the new 5433 Foundations Door Set? These four foundations are so fantastic! I love them all.  They come with all the containers without having to do any masking and planning.  You can fill them with anything, plants, flowers, animals, southwestern, or decorate them for a holiday. I highly recommend them all!

Art Impressions New Release June 9 , 2021

 Hi All,

Have you seen Art Impressions Owner/Creator Bonnie's tutorial using the brand new 5435 Foundations Potting Bench? It's certainly my favorite! I used my Misti stamp platform to stamp this foundation after inking it it Tombow 969. Pull the color out of the lines, then you can stamp any of the cute animals from the brand new peeking animals set using a stamp positioner. I used the owl and bunny but there are five animals in this new set 5425. I love owls so I have to say, that's my favorite one. You can use any of the foliage and flowers you have to fill the pots and use whatever colors you have as well.  The possibilities are endless! Have fun!

Southwest Window Scene June 9, 2021


I just love this new 5408 Shadow Box Window Set and since one of my son's loves southwestern, I had to try this out. I used the mountain from the 5198 Mountain Set inked in 969. The building is from the 5196 Desert Set inked in both the 969 and 565 but stamped off first on scratch paper. The cactus and rocks are from that set 5196 also. The tree trunk and leaves are from the 5372 Mini Foliage Set inked in 969 and 177. The grass is from that set as well. Happy crafting!

Ai Watercolor Weekend June 5, 2021


I bet you are as excited as I am about the brand new Art Impression's stamps. The four foundations are fabulous! They take the work out of creating a scene like this one - no planning or masking. It's a game changer. Use any flowers or animals and use any colors you like. I chose to use this stamp set for my favorite red, white and blue theme because of the three chairs. I stamped the foundation from the 5433 Foundations Chairs in with N45 which doesn't really allow you to pull the color out of the lines but I was ok with that. I just used the palette to watercolor everything in and then used 565 to add shading and shadows. I drew in the USA pennant. I used the Molotow masking pen to add the white dots and the lines on the pots in the middle.
