Ai Watercolor Weekend August 20, 2021


I like getting an early start on Christmas cards so I decided to make this one from a similar scene I saw on Pinterest. Hope you like it. If you want to make it, stamp the watering can from the 5123 Decorative Jar Set inked in Tombow N45. Use the 4960 Fir Trees Set inked in 249 for the foliage in the watering can. I also used the 4964 Branches Set inked in 969 after I added water to the greenery. The flowers inside the can are from the 4052 Flowers Set 1 inked in 856. The can itself is colored in N45 and the decorative element is stamped in the 177. The other four pots are from the 4869 Small Containers Set, also inked in N45. Be sure to mask off the ones in front when you stamp the ones in back. Color the water in with the N45. The bigger container is colored in with 177 and then I used a Signo white pigment ink gel pen to add the stripes. The other pot is color in with 856 and the dots are with the same Signo pen. Use whatever foliage and flowers you have for inside the pots. I used the 4963 Fall Set, 5258 Flower Set 4 and the small foliage from the 5126 Foliage Set 4. The birds are from the 4966 Bird Bath Set inked in 969, then colored in with 969 and 856. Don't forget to use the Tombow Twin Tone in brown to darken the eyes and beaks of the birds like Owner/Creator Bonnie does. Lastly, I drew in the shiplap wall using a pencil and t-ruler then used some N45 to make the shadows. The sentiment is from the 5209 SBC Exclusive Poinsettia Set inked in 177. I cut out the frame using the 5062 Rounded Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Dies set. Don't forget to use the #thedailymarker30day to play along with Kathy Racoosin's coloring challenge on Instagram.
